Geoffrey Hooper struggled to accept both his vocation to priesthood and his gay sexuality. Discarding masks of denial and self-deception he ended his thirteen year marriage and moved from comfortable parish ministry in the Cotswolds to East London. There he headed-up a large charity at the cutting edge of alleviating social deprivation and lived openly in a gay partnership. After being awarded a MBE he moved close to his daughters in Wales to work as a NHS and Relate psychotherapist. His painful personal journey challenges intolerance and encourages others also to embrace their personal truth whilst deepening their faith.
