Andrew Marin is the President and Founder of The Marin Foundation, a non-profit organization that works to build bridges between the LGBT community and conservative religious groups through biblical and social education, scientific research and diverse community gatherings. Their unique approach strategically partners with both conservative and LGBT people and organizations to make a sustainable difference in today’s religious and secular cultures. The Marin Foundation also conducted the largest national scientific research study ever done in the LGBT community regarding spirituality and religion, with the results published late 2012. Andrew is also the author of Love is an Orientation.
