Alicia is a former pastor in the Seventh-day Adventist church. In 2017 she came out as LGBTQ affirming and as bisexual in a viral video that resulted in her forced resignation.

She is now co-host of the podcast Open Bible, which uses theology and storytelling to teach queer affirming theology. She also writes on the topic and is working on a book for Seventh-day Adventists explaining in their unique language and theology why they can affirm same-sex marriage and support gender transition.
