The Gays Among Christians

Anonymous students at Arkansas' Harding University have published this zine about being gay at the conservative Christian school. Their website has been blocked on campus. This is a fascinating development: in previous generations, gay students at such a school would simply have left, or, you know, killed themselves.

Interesting side note: Harding was the name of the closet case in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest".

THE STATE OF THE GAY is my new political thriller screenplay, in which a straight FBI agent finally discovers hard (!) proof of the homosexualist conspiracy in the US government.

I'm thinking Sir Ian McKellen as the head of Homintern.

Based on the bestseller "Three Gays of the Condor"

Just thought of another one: Executive Realness

In seriousness, though, I recently had a good friend who very much loves the jeeb come out to me and most of his friends. While he has always come from a place of "God is Love" rather than "God will hate you unless…," he still spent many years struggling with whether or not he was an abomination according to his own God that he so loved. He worried that in order to be who he was, he'd have to give up his religion, which was an important part of his life. He eventually got it all figured out, but I bet he could have used some encouragement like that found in this adorable 'zine to speed up the process a bit. Keep fighting the good fight, kiddos!
