That truth is that bad therapy, mixed with religion at it’s worst, combined with sexual trauma and mental anguish, does not take the gay away. I repeat, does not take the gay away. It never has, and it never will.

About Nate

The Other Side of Saved is a blog & podcast about healing from trauma and re-claiming joy. Nate Postlethwait grew up in the Bible belt. Bad therapy mixed with addictive religion hijacked his ability to address the traumatic experiences of his early life. His story is one of sexual abuse and addiction, strict religion, great career success, depression, finding his identity, coming out as gay, and discovering the healing that can come in the wake of such pain. For years, his grief was overwhelming. And, for the first time, he feels exceptionally at peace from the inside out, and has never felt safer in the hands of God. Nate shares his story one podcast at a time, with the intention of helping others who may find themselves in similar circumstances.
