Plan was to make myself straight and rid myself of depression.

Added May 12, 2011 I’ve known I was different ever since I can remember. I always felt like an outcast and like I was the polar opposite of normal. When I was little I didn’t really know why I was different, I just knew I was. As I got into middle school, I realized that […]

I know now that this isn’t a sin.

Added May 12, 2011 I’ve always known I was different ever since I was a little girl. I didn’t know how to express my feelings and I often found myself angry and upset. I have always been a tomboy but in junior high I actually started to have feelings for my friends and I knew […]

God loves you just the way you are!

Added March 26, 2011 Like so many older women I grew up when being gay was unheard of and no one even spoke the “L” word. I always felt different and by the time I was about 10 I knew I was different but didn’t dare to even think that it was because I was […]

My struggle has never been with God

Added March 26, 2011 I have to trust that as every year recycles, spring brings new life to us. This spring, however, has been a puzzling one. Within its early presence, loss of life has come to pass. The idea of losing those dear to me and those around me is contrary to what has […]

It was religion, not God, that shunned me

I grew up in a not so small but very religious town. When I was eight my father left us because he was gay. It wasn’t long after that time that I realized I like girls, but I was determined not to be gay. My church said it was wrong, my friends said it was […]

God made me as I am and no one can separate me from the love of God

I knew I was a lesbian at an early age (around 7 y.o.) I knew at that age because my mother was a pentecostal preacher, so the churches we attended not only explained what being a lesbian was, all homosexuals were condemned to eternal hell-fire. Needless to say I spent years (about 9) begging God […]

I prayed to God everyday…

I knew I was gay when I was 5. I didn’t know what sex was. I just knew I wanted to be with girls. It wasn’t a choice. As I was a Christian then I went to church and participated in all church activities till I was 30. I never dated till I was 35 […]

I’ve been honest with everyone else….

I’ve been honest with everyone else in my life so there’s no point in not saying I’m gay on here. I think I’ve been asking my dad here and there to test the waters, well what if one of your daughters was gay, without really knowing I was testing the waters if that makes any […]
