Callie is an activist, speaker, host of The Gaytheist Manifesto podcast, which explores the intersection of issues facing both the atheist movement and the LGBTQ movement, and founder of The LGBT Secular Alliance. Callie’s mission is to be a voice for the LGBTQ community in the atheist movement, and a voice for atheism/secularism in the LGBTQ community.
