EDIT:Masood is more of an optimist than I am.
Edit:There IS a Lynchburg PFLAG
At my alma mater, The Univ. of Minn., Jack Baker, an openly gay man, was elected student body president, in 1971.
I would love to reach out and give you a big hug. Most of us here would, but my arms arn't 1000 miles long, and most here have much the same problem.
I think you need someone gay sensitive, and not
judgmental to talk to. (Strongly consider moving to a more accepting place.) I know from the experience of a close friend that a nursing school can stop you from getting a career, or even a degree, and not have to answer to anyone.
P-FLAG, Parents, Friends and Family of Lesbians and Gays is a national organization. See Above.
Church of the Covenant - UCC
4415 Boonsboro RD.
Lynchburg, VA24503, and
First Unitarian Church of Lynchburg - UU
818 Court Street
EDIT: Boonsboro seems to be a fair ways out. They're on the northwest corner, and Liberty is on the southeast
Above are my only references for a gay friendly church in Lynchburg, and you probably don't want to be seen visiting such Ungawdly Liberals. (UCC is my church, and they're wonderful)
There are many wonderful LGBT resources on the web. But Lynchburg, and Liberty have a REPUTATION, and not a good one.
