About IMPACT Magazine


MPACT Magazine is an online, multi-author, collaborative effort, for and by LGBTQ+ people of faith. We’re a magazine for Bold, Authentic and Engaged living, where we talk about everything relating to the LGBTQ+ spiritual life while living in the Real World.

Our focus

  • To be a “safe place” for LGBTQ+ believers, to restore faith and hope, and encourage spiritual development
  • Create a sense of community and belonging: You are not alone
  • Where Faith, Culture, and LGBTQ+ life intersect — “There’s more to being Christian than just church. There’s more to being LGBTQ+ than just sex.”   Faith and being LGBTQ+ are completely compatible, and should be fully integrated parts of life.
  • To be authentic in addressing Real Life issues, and not shy away from topics ignored or glossed over by other faith-related publications. (“This is not your father’s Christian magazine!”)
