My name is Aaron Jay Ledesma. I’m Catholic. I’m gay. I’m me. My journey as the Gay Catholic began when I first heard Pope Francis’ words of love and acceptance of the LGBT community. His words brought me back to the Church. My mission is to share my spiritual experience & political opinions as an openly gay man in the Church and America. In 2015, President Barack Obama & First Lady Michelle Obama invited me to the White House to welcome Pope Francis to America. If you are closeted or struggling with your faith or sexuality and want to reach out to me privately, please email me at: email@example.com.
