The bishop of Grantham has become the first Church of England bishop to say that he is gay and in a relationship.
Bishop Nicholas Chamberlain, a suffragan in Lincoln diocese, was consecrated last year by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby - who has said he knew about the bishop's sexuality.
He was in a "long-term and committed" relationship, Archbishop Welby said.
Bishop Chamberlain says he obeys Church guidelines which say gay clergy must remain celibate.
The archbishop also said: "His appointment as Bishop of Grantham was made on the basis of his skills and calling to serve the Church in the Diocese of Lincoln.
