As the holidays approach and I make plans to head home to celebrate, I’m preparing myself for the inevitable awkwardness that comes up when interacting with my conservative Christian family. I love my family and I have a strong sense of where I come from…but I don’t exactly see eye-to-eye with everyone on issues of sexual orientation and politics (topics prone to explosive arguments followed by crying). I’ve come a long way in the last 10 tens years I’ve been “out” and I’m still working on opening my family members’ hearts and minds.
Below is a little video I made on the popular site Xtranormal and it summarizes the basic arguments I’ve encountered over the years when discussing being gay with Christians. I hope you enjoy it and I’m sure many of you can relate.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone and a big WOOF to ya.
