A PROMINENT gay activist in the Church of England will talk about her new autobiography in Oxford tomorrow.

Jayne Ozanne, who lives in Littlemore, has written a book called Just Love: A Journey of Self-Acceptance.

The gay evangelical Christian, who campaigns for LGBT equality in the Church, has previously spoken to the Oxford Mail about her struggle to accept her sexuality due to stigma in some religious circles.

She has spoken out about her traumatic past experience with so-called conversion therapy, a type of counselling which aims to ‘cure’ Christians of homosexuality.

Ms Ozanne will speak about the book at University Church of St Mary the Virgin in Oxford tomorrow during a sermon, as part of the Sunday morning service.

It coincides with Oxford Pride weekend and all are welcome to join at 10.30am.

She said: “I hope the book will provide comfort to others who are struggling to come to terms with their sexuality.

“I hope it will encourage the Church to reflect on the painful impact of its current teaching that can lead so many to self-hate and self-harm.”

Ms Ozanne added on Twitter: “I am really grateful to be able to launch my story of reconciling my faith with my longing for love with those who would really understand the importance of this.”

The book will then be officially launched on June 12 at St James and Emmanuel Church in Didsbury, Manchester.

In January Ms Ozanne set up the Ozanne Foundation charity, to work with religious organisations across the world to combat prejudice and promote equality.
