If the Bible-belt churches knew Vicky Beeching was gay all these years, would they have had her singing in their churches? Knowing the American evangelical church, probably not. She sang at plenty of American churches, and all along she was gay.
From her website:
“On August 14th, 2014, in an interview that featured on the front page of The Independent and The i newspapers, Vicky came out as gay. Her hope is to see her story give others courage to speak out, and to be part of ongoing conversations about sexuality within the Church.
