Welcome to the Coming Out Strong blog of Brethren Mennonite Council for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Interests (BMC). This blog is sponsored by the Kaleidoscope program of BMC and is focused on the perspectives of youth and young adults who identify with the BMC community (Brethren or Mennonite related and lgbtqa).
Here at Coming Out Strong we will include commentary and news on a range of topics that relate to BMC. Some of these will include: lgbtq issues, language, homophobia, the church, Mennonites, Brethren, politics, culture, faith, being young, privilege, current events, school, theology, humor, coming out, stories, and family.
If you are interested contributing some of your thoughts to the blog, please contact Kaleidoscope Coordinator Hayley Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This blog is generally moderated from the BMC office. We are usually here Monday through Friday, 9-5 CST. If you would like to write a post, email email@example.com about the topic and/or a rough draft of the post. If you have questions, please contact Hayley at 612.343.2060 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
