Thank you for Connie Barden's "Lesbian and Gay Youths at Risk" (Viewpoint, October 2004), which is significant not only for nurses and other clinicians but for the general population as well. Although I'm heterosexual, I've been involved for the past several years with Soulforce through my church, the Disciples of Christ. I coauthored a book about what gays and lesbians feel when they come out to their church congregations. It consists primarily of interviews with gay Christians, as well as parents of gays and lesbians. I'm so sorry for the negative encounters that they endure, and I wish them peace as they stand up for who they are.
