Chely Wright on Oprah

These stories help me to realize that I am not alone, I am not broken, and give me the strength and courage to be who God created me to be.

This is who God made me to be. Of course I came out because if I didn’t I would never be whole … but another compelling reason is that young people in every corner of America are being told by their churches — and their parents are echoing what their churches are telling them — that they are damaged goods. And they are not!

The word “lesbian” has been used as an insult about me for a long time. And I’m taking my power back. You can say I’m ugly. You can say my songs are stupid. But I won’t allow the word “lesbian” to be used as an insult toward me anymore.
