Franziska Garner

German in the US, LGBT activist, Gay Christian

Born in Germany, Franziska moved to the United States in September 2015. In November she married her wife Lisa. They live together in Texas. Coming to the United States was a culture shock for her. The lack of full equality for the LGBT community is as shocking to her as the way religion is abused to persecute said community. Franziska is passionate about sharing her experiences about being European, Christian and part of the LGBT-community in the United States. Together with her wife, a preacher, she travels, offers workshops and works as a public speaker. She hopes that her unique perspective allows other people to think outside the box. Even just a little bit.
