I read and hear the phrase “homosexual lifestyle” so frequently that I have decided it is time to tell the truth about my homosexual lifestyle. The best way I can think to do that is simply share scenes from this past week. I hope you will not be shocked, I hope none of the scenes below are offensive.
My homosexual sisters and brothers, you are invited to share scenes from your homosexual lifestyle in the comments below so we can finally be seen for who we really are.
