Mixed Orientation Marriages - Recording
PACFA Webinar Recordings
ACRC presents: Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual – but in a straight marriage
People find themselves in mixed orientation marriages for a variety of reasons; generational, geographical, religious, family or cultural pressures or just an overwhelming need to be ‘normal’. Some come to a realisation later in life. Others have lived in denial. Many come to a point where the cognitive dissonance of living two personas becomes too stressful and there’s a desire to live authentically. Managing the complexities of relationships and the potential traumatic outcomes of honesty can be paralysing.

Anthony Venn-Brown was once a popular preacher in Australia’s mega-churches. His bestselling autobiography, A Life of Unlearning, details his 22-year struggle coming to terms with his homosexuality. Since 2000, Anthony’s worked extensively with individuals seeking resolution of faith and/or their sexuality, conversion therapy survivors and gay and lesbian people in heterosexual marriages. As founder of Ambassadors & Bridge Builders International, Anthony has provided training and been a conference speaker for organisations both in Australia and overseas.
