I love all kinds of people…

Here’s the thing,

I love boys, I love girls, I love women, I love men… but above all: I love people.

I love people, and their crap. And I’m willing to push through people’s crap to find a story, and I’m willing to push through people’s story (the good, the bad, the triumphant, and the ugly) to get down to the bottom of who they are.

I love who people are.

“The fear of male homosexuality is the fear of the loss of male dominance in our society — if everybody gets equally sexualized and equally open to having sex with everybody else then the whole system of male dominance gets called into question

I am a 20-something Christian who’s attracted to the same gender, experiences conflict in my bi-cultural identity, and in a healthy and lively relationship with someone of the opposite gender… and boy do I have a story to tell you.

I discovered my attraction for the same gender when I was young. The Christians at the church I went to (whether they knew about it or not) treated me like a second class citizen because I think differently. I grew out of that part of my life, though, with a lot of self-discovery and learning under my belt. I could tell you the rest (and everything in my blog will be a telling of sorts). But really, all I’m getting at in this particular space is that every gay person deserves to be love and deserve for their story to be honoured. I’ve learned that Christians are the worst at this, since I continue to be a victim of hate. If you’re a church goer reading this, know that I am the one that’s been tolerating the church’s hate and ignorance. And I forgive. Yes. Just like that. Not because it is deserved or has been earned. But just because I want to.

I firmly believe that we need a generation where the title Christian doesn’t remind people of “hate” or “friggin’ homophobes”. Rather, one day, the title Christians will remind people of “Love”. Real, ridiculous, inconvenient, and consuming Love.
