Any gay former JWs out there?

    Not gay, but the friend of many a gay JW who eventually broke out. And one or two who jumped back in!! Good god!

    I had four close JW friends who eventually climbed out of the closet - after fathering 10 kids amongst them. I wish them and you Ben all the best in the world. And you are definitely welcome here.

    Oops misread the title... thought it was about former gay JWs.

    Hey Ben,

    There are quite a few gay members of the board. And, in my experience, the straight folks on this site (for the most part) are very supportive.

    OK, I'm back. Got home from work. Thanks for all the comments. I appreciate that you took the time to write.

    I kind of went crazy on Sunday and started that Yahoo group -- but I've disbanded the "party of one." So the link is no longer any good. (Couldn't figure out how to edit/delete it in the post.) And it seems there are lots of other resources for those who are XJW-Lite.

    Hey, you're a sweetheart Auntie Momz. (Isn't that a movie?) I'll send you a birthday card.

    There were some other nice response, like from Spaghetti-Man -- thanks for the kind PMs (is that what they're called? Sounds like something female to me.)

    Wish I had written down peoples' names to personally respond but ...

    Ben (forgettin')

    There has been an exgay support group out there for years which has had differing numbers of participants over the years. it is called A Common Bond

    You know, sometimes we just have to form our own families. I don't know if it's a movie, maybe it should be.
