“I know a lot of queer folks have been burned by the church, I totally understand why people are really confused when I tell them I love Jesus. Like, really, really confused. I get it, I grew up with the fire and brimstone stuff my whole life and it took me such a long time to unlearn that. For me, God is truly love and that's what He is for me. In fact, being non-binary only makes me feel closer to God, since God doesn't have a gender either (even though folks say He.)
My relationship with God is alive and thriving, bright and vibrant. I always hope that every new person I meet feels loved my me so they can get a glimpse of what His love does to someone.
I hope people never think that God and queerness are incompatible; Jesus was radical. His brand of love is radical. He queered so much of what religion was at the time and so much of it resonates with me.
However, I won't try to proselytize! Do you and connect to your God in whatever form you connect best with them. I just hope you approach your fellow humans with love & respect!” - Remy (Pronouns: they/them/their)
