Recently my mom convinced me to start going to the UU church with her. I went mostly to support her and because they're supposed to have a very welcoming atmosphere for GLBT people and I'm considering coming out as bi.
I'm kind of excited, because the GSA at my school is almost totally activist so it's not really the right place to make that kind of announcement, believe it or not. I'm really looking forward to having a whole big group of people who know this about me, because I'm all excited and happy about it myself.
There are a couple of problems, though. There are only two girls I've ever thought I really loved, and they're both in my new youth group. One of them I've pretty much over and I think I'll be okay-- but the other I still really like and naturally her boyfriend is there, too. I don't want to spend an hour and a half every Sunday watching them fawn over each other, and I honestly don't know how I'll feel about coming out to the two crushes who basically made it impossible for me to ignore my sexuality.
Finally, I just don't really consider myself Christian. I wasn't raised in any religion and although I'm intrigued by the atmosphere of welcome and support (especially since UUs are so open and accepting), I'm just not that interested in organized religion and I never have been. I'm not totally comfortable with the idea of belonging to a church, period.
