I am a published author of a book called The “Gay” Christian, which I published in 2018 at age 17.
I grew up attending Cypress hills Bible camp in Cypress hills Sk, from age 5-13 and worked at for 3 of those years before getting kicked out for my sexuality and believing homosexuality isn’t a sin. This lead me to reaching out and becoming apart of Camp Shagabec a beautiful amazing United Church camp where I was welcomed and accepted with so much love. I have been part of Camp Shagabec since and this year marks 8 years. I have been a counsellor, paid staff, and board member. I spend and dedicate my Summers to Camp ministry which I love and am so greatful for.
I am 21 years old, 2 Spirited, Indigenous of Cree/Métis heritage, Single but have an amazing loving Puppy named Luna.
I look forward to hearing each of your life journeys and to become apart of each journey.
Pastor Shane.
