Symon Hill
Symon Hill is a left-wing Christian activist. He describes himself on his Twitter page as "Queer, ecosocialist, pacifist."[1] He is associate director of the Christian thinktank Ekklesia. he is author of The No-Nonsense Guide to Religion and regularly writes in The Guardian. He is bisexual, and got the BBC to correct an item describing him as gay.[2]

He admits that on first becoming a Christian he campaigned against acceptance of gay relationships by the church, but has since recognised that he was wrong.[3] In 2011 he walked from Birmingham to London, as a pilgrimage of repentance for homophobia.[4]
