Religion & Belief
Discovering that one of your loved ones is gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender can be particularly traumatic for those of us who come from a faith background. It can often cause conflict with deeply held views and can lead to great soul searching and questioning of one’s fundamental beliefs.
Strong religious communities provide definite answers to important life questions and also stable relationship structures. Living without these can be a scary experience but many have found that they have been made stronger as a result of their questioning journey.
FFLAG does not presume to offer interpretation on such texts as the Bible, the Koran or Torah but does have members who have faced these issues and who are able to share their experiences with others.
Local groups can provide empathetic support and will be able to point to external sources for more specific help.
The following section is intended to provide helpful information on resources available on the Internet. Links here go outside the FFLAG pages.
