Suzie Endow and Ellen Tanouye

Ellen Tanouye was in her 50s when she began attending church, looking for answers to life's tough questions. Suzie Endow happened to be the pastor at that church.  The two women met, became friends and then, much more. They sat down at the San Francisco StoryCorps booth to talk about reconciling their love for one another with their faith in God.

Ellen Tanouye: For me it was untangling who I am and trying to figure out the God loves me as what? As a queer woman?
