The Pope's openness to LGBTQ Catholics hits a wall | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

In the eight years of his papacy, Francis has talked about and modeled more acceptance of LGBTQ people than his predecessors, writes Heidi Schlumpf. He sends signs and makes baby steps.

Sex & Sexuality Featuring Noah Michelson

Sex & Sexuality Featuring Noah Michelson | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

I’m Noah Michelson and I’m from Racine, Wisconsin, which is a good place to go home to now but not a great place to grow up if you’re queer and especially in the 80s. And I was the queerest kid that I’ve ever met that I think anyone has ever met. I came out of the womb, ready to go. And not just queer but also super sexual and I don’t really know where that came from. And I don’t think anyone really does. And when I say that, my first memories and my first urges and desires were wanting to have sex with men. I had crushes on Mr. Rogers, I had a crush on Jesus, any kind of masculine figure in my life, I wanted to have sex with them.
