What should I do if I think I’m gay and I come from a very religious family?
It doesn’t matter what faith that you were raised in, God loves you. And it doesn’t matter if you believe in God or not, you’re a worthwhile person. You’re worthy of being loved. Having gay thoughts or feelings doesn’t make you bad. Many religions frown upon gay sexual acts. This is a dilemma that you will have to work out with yourself, God and your own conscience. There are, however, many religious denominations that support healthy gay relationships. Finding peace with your spiritual and sexual needs will be a difficult journey. It is a journey that others have been on. It is a journey that has a successful end. Talk to somebody that cares about you and that will listen.
