Scott- Welcome to the forum. There is a member here who lives in the valley around Phoenix- and I bet she will make her appearance soon enough- Zerbie- Bekah has already mentioned her. And she goes to a gay -friendly church. Perhaps a place to start reaching out and choosing family?
You know, it's said that half of life is showing up. And it sounds that you are well on your way to finding you way.
Wishing you much peace and joy.
Be the love you seek.
