Welcome to Beyond! 

We exist to support LGBTQ+ people through their coming out process, with a specific focus on those that come from conservative Christian backgrounds. As the daughter of a Focus on the Family executive, I understand the fear that comes with trying to reconcile your faith with your sexuality and the pain that comes with being rejected by those you love most. As the founder and president of Beyond, I am passionate about  about dissolving shame, fostering self acceptance, and generating messages of hope for LGBTQ+ people of faith. With compassion that comes from experience, I strive to help LGBTQ+ people reconcile their faith with their sexuality as well as create conversations for change among the families, friends, and loved ones of LGBTQ+ people in order to guide them towards a place of full acceptance and inclusion.

Please visit the About page to learn more about the work we do. Together we can renew our faith, restore our hope, and reclaim our love!

Because LOVE Makes All the Difference,

Amber Cantorna
Founder/President of Beyond
