Official Bio

Amber Cantorna is a national speaker and storyteller supporting LGBTQ people through their coming out process and educating others on the importance of full inclusion. 

Most often known as the gay daughter of a 30-year Focus on the Family executive, Amber lost everything when she came out in 2012. This all-too-often narrative has made Amber passionate about dissolving shame, fostering self-acceptance, and generating messages of hope for LGBTQ+ people and their families, especially those from conservative faith backgrounds.

In 2020, she founded the Unashamed Love Collective ~ a private member-based online community for LGBTQ+ people and allies to learn, grow, and support.

She’s the author of Unashamed: A Coming-Out Guide for LGBTQ Christians (WJK Press, 2019) and Refocusing My Family: Coming Out, Being Cast Out, and Discovering the True Love of God” (Fortress Press, 2017).

Amber’s expertise has led her to speak across the country at various conferences, Fortune 500 companies, universities, non-profit organizations, and churches. She’s also been featured in numerous podcasts and writing mediums. Being a gay female living with an invisible disability makes Amber passionate about fighting for the equality, equity, and dignity of all people.

In her free time, Amber can be found cuddling with her dogs, spending time in nature, or connecting with people over coffee. She loves dark chocolate, trying new things, and walking labyrinths.
