I don't see anyplace in the Bible that leads one to believe that God is anti-gay. I see nothing but affirmation in the Scriptures for love shown to God and to others. I believe God is very pleased when two people pledge themselves to each other to love and support.
I would have to agree with Pablo on this one. I used to feel like the scriptures told me it was wrong for me to be a lesbian, but through all of my prayers, not once has God told me I was wrong. There are many articles that offer different stances on the scriptures, and I now fully believe that the Bible does not say anything about homosexuality being wrong. I think that finding an accepting church is always helpful. Whether or not moving is worth it? well, thats for you to decide, but I think I would take the risk...as a student at a highly conservative Christian college, I can tell you that an accepting church would be absolutely wonderful in helping to keep my faith strong.
God will be with you no matter what decision you make, but lean on Him to lead you down the right path, don't try to decide on your own.
you will be in my prayers
