I've been a Gay since I was in 3rd grade. I've been Christian since I was in 5th grade. I am now a young adult. Up until recently, I believed that either the Celibate life or the life in the closet was the appropriate life for me. Homesexuality was something I was "struggling with". After years of this "struggle", I realize I'm okay just as who I am. This is a major weight lifted off of my shoulders. I have been blessed with a family and a Church Leadership that is in support of me (but none of them are gay). I'm joining this group because some fellow people in my shoes would be a huge support.
Friendship, encouragement, Networking. Possibly supporting each other to work to promote our message. A likeminded bf would be nice too (not sure if this is appropriate here, but hey its the truth lol)
Before I was out, when I told a girl who was hoping I'd ask her out, her response was "But you can't be both gay and Christian". Hmmmmm. I know I can't change my sexuality, so does that mean I can't be a Christian? I know that Christ's Salvation is for everyone....and this Question "Do you agree that you can be both a Christian and GBLT?", is one which I've struggled with for over 15 years. Not struggling anymore.......My answer to this question is YES. I only hope others can agree.
Hello. I'm Dave from Buffalo. Excited to find a local group like this one. I'm a Gay Christian, and in Buffalo that is very rare. I group for support, encouragement, and people with similiar views on life would be a great uplift.
