This space is created for LGBTQ people and friends and family members of the LGBTQ community who are attempting to develop and maintain healthy, loving, authentic relationships.
I hear a lot of sad and tragic stories of lost and damaged relationships (a young man who has been with the same partner for years still isn’t allowed to bring his partner to his parents home for holidays or anytime for that matter, a woman has to choose between ending the relationship with her mother or listening to her mother condemn her with every interaction, a gay man is only allowed to see his adolescent daughter with supervision because he finally admitted that he is gay, a gay teen attempts suicide because the rejection is so painful and so many, many more) and it breaks my heart.
Even though I don’t have any professional training, I have a little bit of personal experience and a lot of passion to help people who are struggling with relationship problems due to division caused by certain beliefs and/or views about LGBTQ.
It is my hope that someone (maybe you) will discover something unexpected here … some piece of information – a friend or two – some helpful resources – a different perspective – love and grace – an ally – a new way, or something I can’t even imagine that will be helpful and hopeful in your quest.
