Sue Gilmore, author, activist, business woman and church worker graduated from Bible College in the early 1980’s with a degree in Biblical Studies.  Her original intent had been to follow her schooling with a career in full time Christian work, but she soon realized that her sexual orientation would not allow her to pursue her life-long goals. Being true to herself and her sexual identity she chose instead to pursue a business career in Real Estate. 

Starting at an entry level position gave her the background and foundation she needed for success. From the beginning of her career Sue soon found that her newly chosen path suited her God given talents and proved to be rewarding and satisfying. Now almost thirty years later she is the Vice President and Regional Manager for one of the largest Title Insurance companies in the nation.  

Sue’s journey to sexual awareness and finally to peace with herself is intermixed with her life and career.  God has always been the central focus of her life even if she was not allowed by the Church to serve Him in a full time capacity. Sue felt called to author The Peace Seeker as an attempt to bring awareness to the public of the misinterpretation and prejudice found within the Christian church surrounding the subject of homosexuality. Her book asks those who equate being gay as sin to reconsider their beliefs. Sue is a strong advocate of those who are Christian and Gay and have been ostracized from their family of faith.
