Anthony Venn-Brown

Biography

In a former life, Anthony Venn-Brown was a high-profile Pentecostal preacher, speaking regularly in Australia’s megachurches. His autobiography, A Life of Unlearning, details his 22-year struggle through gay conversion therapy, exorcisms and marriage trying NOT to be gay. As the first Australian conversion therapy survivor to tell his story this opened a floodgate of responses from readers with similar experiences. Since 2000, Anthony has worked extensively with people experiencing faith/sexuality conflict and brought greater acceptance and equality in Christian circles. He is the founder and CEO of Ambassadors & Bridge Builders International and been recognised for his contribution several times, including being twice voted one of the 25 most influential gay and lesbian Australians.
