God of the LGBT speaks to every LGBT person (and specifically those of faith) to encourage them that they are not alone. That they have the support not only the LGBT community at large, but also a God who is looking out for them; fighting for them; standing with them; and crying with them. As the Christian community continues to cast out its LGBT brothers and sisters, God is continuously following them, reaching them where they are, and loving them no matter what.
call you out is a song directed specifically at the Christian community. When all we were called to do was love, we see so much hate; so much judgement; so much condemnation; so many double standards. Having had enough, nick addresses that directly in call you out, reminding them that Jesus welcomed all no matter what.
bastard sons is a combined effort between nick and others within the Christian LGBTQ community. Using bits and pieces from what others contributed here, nick composed a song that shows the struggle many within the Christian LGBTQ go through as discover their sexual identity. Darkness clouded many lives during this time, with suffering and despair feeling like the only options. This song serves as an exposure to those who have not experienced this what it’s like, and a reminder for those who have that they are not alone and we are God’s children.
(disclaimer: there are references to death within the song)

And now let’s think about all the things […]

This has been an exhausting week for those within the LGBT community. Emotional breakdowns. Keeping a constant eye over your shoulder at pride and memorial events. Anger. All of these feelings, and more, swirling within us at once. But I think the Christian LGBT community had it worst. Not only were we heartbroken by the […]

I can’t scroll facebook without crying. I can’t talk with friends or coworkers without crying. I can’t think about it without crying. The event in Orlando (and almost event in LA) leave me, and countless others within the LGBT community, an emotional wreck. It hits home. We know exactly why those people were in that […]

As a pacifist, I’ve always had an awkward relationship with holidays that celebrate war and violence. It’s not something I believe is necessarily or beneficial for anyone, and celebrating it as a national holiday sits poorly with me. It wasn’t until I saw this image that my friend posted that Memorial Day really hit me. […]
