I’m a gay man who also grew up in a religious background. Feeling that your very existence is wrong and knowing that you can’t do anything about it really sucks. Unlike Chambers, I never had the energy to fight it. Instead, I’ve just given up and pulled away from religion and my family. Yet I still feel too ashamed to live an “active” gay life style or date. It seems like I can’t completely escape either side. If I could take a pill to either be straight or undo my religious upbringing I so would. Good article, though. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who struggles with this.
