Being Gay in the Priesthood
Here’s a personal piece about what it’s like to be gay in the Priesthood. It’s someone’s life experience and it’s not about studies and research.
Over time, I even came to think of myself as “out,” because most of the people who mattered to me knew who I was. I think many gay priests feel similarly. We’re seen and known to the people we care about. That’s enough.
Here’s more. I grew up Catholic and went to 12 years of Catholic school and I remember that it was never openly discussed. With this said, I have posted about the gay priests I’ve known as an adult who lived double lives. I’ve always found it to be very toxic.
