Kathy Baldock, author, LGBTQ advocate, and Executive Director of CanyonWalker Connections, is a leading expert on LGBTQ issues in the United States, especially dealing with historical and current discrimination faced from the socially conservative Christian church and political sector.
Kathy Baldock founded Canyonwalker Connections in 2009 as a natural outgrowth of her already-burgeoning ministry of reconciliation between the socially and religiously conservative American community and the LGBT community. A graduate of Rutgers University's College of Engineering, as well as an accomplished entrepreneur and small business owner, Baldock had no ties to the LGBT community until 2001 when she forged a friendship with a woman who she later found out was a lesbian. Through organic relationship and years of research, Baldock shifted her own views and saw the immense need for accessible education in this area. More of the specifics of her backstory can be found at www.canyonwalkerconnections.com.
A video overview of Baldock's teaching entitled "Unclobbering the Tangled Mess" which follows her book "Walking the Bridgeless Canyon" can be found on Youtube at https://youtu.be/MBwajcvZtqw
An accompanying Discussion Guide for "Walking the Bridgeless Canyon" can also be found on Amazon.
Baldock currently travels the country speaking in venues from churches to university campuses, sharing the eye-opening findings of her research fully tailored to audience needs. She engages with a visual timeline in ways that help audience members identify, assimilate, and retain information to guide them in overcoming cultural biases and understanding the sources of negative images of LGBT people today.
Baldock is working on her second book, "Forging a Sacred Weapon: How the Bible became Anti-Gay" with fellow researcher, Ed Oxford. The book and accompanying documentary, "Lost in Translation," will be out in Spring and Summer 2020.
