“It was more than homosexuality. Holistically, I was a sinner. I needed Jesus to save the whole of me.”

Raised fatherless, Verge poet Jackie Hill was molested by a family friend and introduced to pornography at an early age. She grew up living in a fog of drugs while struggling with gender confusion and having homosexual desires. At 17, she was in a relationship with another woman, but soon found herself longing for something more.
