    LGBT == Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender


    (I only know because my local library just started such a section.)

    Bascially by saying that I'm an LGBT associate of Jehovah's Witnesses is that, I'm saying that I'm a person that is still attending meetings but I also like women but technically I'm in the closet but my family knows about me liking women...one of the other reasons why I'm planning on leaving the religion. Can't be a lesbian and a JW's. But mostly its because of doctrine reasons, and them misleading their followers.

    Welcome to the forum. I hope you find it a safe place to vent, discuss, and prove to yourself the things that might nag. It looks like you are well on your way in that respect, though.

    Just an aside: Why is the designation LGBT? To me it ought to be just GBT, for doesn't L fall under the general G, if one is needing to attach labels? I have some lesbian friends, but just refer to them as 'gay'. On the other hand, gay doesn't clearly mark gender for homosexual men either. So perhaps the label, if gender specificity is required, should be LHBT? Just thinking out loud.

    Peace to you in your journey Jolliet. Looking forward to hearing more of your story.
