Producer's note: This episode contains detailed discussions of non-consensual outing, mental health emergencies, and suicidal ideation. Listener discretion is advised.

Noemi Uribe, who was interviewed for the documentary Hillsong: A Megachurch Exposed, joins Nate and Gail to tell their story of their time at Hillsong Boston, where they were subjected to a number of spiritually abusive situations by their leaders and pastors.

Referred to by Hillsong leaders as "the Boston Situation," Noemi navigated vague non-policies, homophobia, and a nearly-lethal mishandling of their mental illness.
