Coming out to myself was one of the hardest parts of my journey. Tears were shed, desperate prayers to be changed were prayed. It's been a struggle to accept myself and I couldn't have done it with the help of so many others who have paved the way for me.
So, if you're religious and wondering if God could really love you as you are, if you can be LGBTQ and faithful- the answer is yes.
Wherever you are in the journey, you are worthy of respect and love.
