We are the youth



Until I started at Auburn, I went to a private, Evangelical Christian school in Memphis. I realized I was gay in probably the 7th grade. But if I had come out then, I would have been expelled. The general consensus at my school from Romans 1 was that it wasn’t a sin to be attracted to men, but that it was a sin to act on that attraction. And so I always said to myself I’m in the clear as long as I don’t do anything or tell anybody.
