What goes through the mind of someone who is gay? If you listen to the Christian right, somewhere there is a magical place where people wait in line for hours to sign up to be gay. Because it’s a choice, right? “Hmm. I’ll choose the life where I will face discrimination, fear, loneliness, rejection, lack of rights and possibly risk my life. Yea, that one sounds better.”
I came across an interesting post on the Advocate, a long running, well respected LGBT newspaper. The post started in September of 2006 by a young Christian man who hates being gay and is praying that his faith will give him the strength to overcome being gay.
