Can You be LGBT+ and Religious?
We aren’t one dimensional people, there are lots of different wonderful things that make us whole. Your LGBT+ identity and religious or spiritual identity don’t have to be separate. Figuring out what you think, what God(s) or other deities think, and dealing with what LGBT+ communities and religious communities think can be difficult. Remember that throughout all of this you are valued, important and deserving of respect.
I have heard that God has known me before I was even born, my queerness is not news to Him; being my whole, authentic self is vital to being in relationship with God; I am wholly and fully loved, unconditionally. (Black, gay woman, Christian, age 35)
