  • Great sites- thanks Anthony. I see you are in Australia. Most of my journey was undertaken in New Zealand, and I will pass these to a family member who is in Brisbane, and working through gender identity and sexuality questions, as well as the very painful reality of a family who find anything other than heterosexual-marriage-not=consummated-until-the-wedding-night unspeakably...

  • Hi Tim, Thank you for your introduction, and for re-kindling this discussion forum. I, too, undertook a range of courses of action to 'deal' with my homosexuality- Exodus, Living Waters, marriage, much prayer and abstinence etc. I agonized, considered suicide, was psychiatrically hospitalized.

  • I did my `LIA' time a number of years ago now, in New Zealand, although I now live in New Hampshire. I `lived out that time' in ambivalence, guilt and suicidal despair. I finally asked God to reveal the truth in love to me, and to give me the grace and humility to accept that, whatever it was. As a result I officially `came out'. It has been a long journey, but I am in a healthy...
