I grew up as a Catholic in Germany. My faith has always been important to me; I’ve always tried to let it shape my life.
I moved to England in 2006, when I started as a Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at Loughborough University. I joined Quest East Midlands in 2007. I was (and am) excited to be in touch with other gay Catholics. I’ve made good friends in Quest, and they were essential for me go come to terms with being gay. If today I’m happily both gay and Catholic, I have Quest to thank for it, and I’m glad to be part of Quest at an exciting time for the church.
