From Shame to Pride: My walk of repentance for homophobia


This summer, Symon Hill walked from Birmingham to London as a pilgrimage of repentance for his former homophobia. In rain, heat, hostility and hospitality, he encouraged Christians to accept same-sex relationships and speak up for equality. He will discuss the insights he gained and the questions he’s still asking.

Symon Hill is an activist, writer and trainer. He is a reporter for The Friend and an associate tutor at the Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre. Until 2009, he oversaw media relations at the Campaign Against Arms Trade. His book The No-Nonsense Guide to Religion was published in 2010.
