I know that heading will come as a shock to some of you, and a relief to others.
Please don’t misunderstand this though, I am a homosexual. Now, the ones who were shocked are relieved, and the relieved ones are shocked.
I am gay, yes, BUT that is only a very small part of who I am:
I am Andrew Michael Bennett.
I am a son, brother, nephew, cousin, friend and best friend.
I am in love with my God, the One who truly loves me unconditionally.
I am a student, and a pretty smart one if I do say so myself.
I am focused on my future. I WILL make a difference in this world.
I am tall, big boned, and I usually have a goofy smile upon my face.
I am confident with who I am… As a human being!
So, here’s where it ends… my sexuality in different from some people, but I’m okay being different.
I don’t, however, use this difference as my identity. There are many things to be said about me, I don’t want my orientation to be the label you see when you look at me.
This is my public coming out. Many of you already knew, and many of you still love me.
Believe me when I say this: No matter what you think of this new piece of information, I will still love you. Unconditionally.
I respect our differences, and I am the same person I have always been.
Through this new blog, I want to open a dialogue and outlet about the issues that I face everyday.
I hope that you will join me on a journey as I wrestle with the problems that face me being a young, gay Christian guy.
