He moved to Portland to attend the University of Southern Maine and began to question his faith.

In this interview, Anderson describes his personal faith journey, the beginnings of that group, and discusses the role of gays and lesbians in the Christian community. The interviewer and Anderson also engage in theological discussion about the intersection of gay identity and religious belief.
