What happens when you grow up at the crossroads of multiple cultures and desperately just want to find your own voice? What does it look like for you to accept yourself in a world that seemingly has no place for you? How does following Jesus allow you to be the most full and authentic version of yourself? How do we honor our unique kingdom-given differences as believers and use our cultural backgrounds to point wholly to the personhood of Jesus? Led by Henry Abuto, this workshop will feature his story of growing up and coming to terms with his sexuality as an immigrant from Kenya trying to assimilate into mainstream American culture while also trying to find his footing and place in the landscape of being a black man in America.
Henry Abuto is a celibate, gay, 29-year-old, Kenyan man who lives in the States. Lover of Jesus, deep friendships, hosting dinner parties, music, Beyoncé, and all things Texas.
