I came out as a lesbian a while ago, and at first the reaction to me was sort of "hidden" I suppose. Now it's gone to everyone in town, I live in a small town that happens. I could have dealt with everyone just knowing, but the local churchgoers and any religious people at all are coming to my door saying that I should change and repent for my sins. To add to that I've lost a lot of friends since then and I really don't know how to deal with all this at once. I'm going to stick by my girlfriend, I wouldn't leave her if the world turned on me, but I need some advice on how to cope with all the insults and pressure. I don't want to go back to SH, so if there's any advice I could really use it.
