“For me, it was an internal thing. Accepting it for myself was the struggle. We’ve always been Christian - gone to church - and just not really being super educated about what being a gay Christian means - just going off what other people thought and misconceptions and stuff like that - is really what I’ve based my beliefs on. My struggles - it all really came from that. I had a hard time accepting - just admitting to myself that I was gay.”

“I would say I, without really calling it that, I almost kind of tried the pray the gay away thing in college. And when that didn’t work, after college, I got really depressed. I would never say that I was actually suicidal, but I came to a point where I realized I couldn’t continue living the way that I was. I started watching videos, looking at things online.”
