Review for The Gay Christian Network, Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

GCN is a fabulous resource for LGBT (and questioning) people who are also Christian. Joining GCN has given me access to many people who have a great idea of what it means to be gay and Christian. I have received wonderful advice from GCN users and I have also been able to give advice of my own. GCN also has allowed me to meet new friends. Best of all, GCN has allowed me to make prayer requests and offer prayer for people in need.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

... the friends that I have. My social life has always been quite limited because in the past being gay and still a follower of Christ has made me feel abnormal and isolated. I have and continue to be able to find people that I can help out and be helped by. I am hopeful that some of the friends I have made on GCN will be life-long friends.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

... give examples to users of how a written message can often be interpreted in two or more ways. Due to the sensitive subjects at hand (being LGBT and Christian), there are an endless range of opinions from GCN users. Sometimes it is difficult to realize and remember that a written user message/post may not have the negative (or positive) tone that the message appears to have. Having example posts and possible interpretations might make this more clear to some users.
