Three Grim Fairy Tales and a Happy Ending

release date: May 01, 2010
Three Grim Fairy Tales and a Happy Ending
Three Grim Fairy Tales and a Happy Ending is based on personal experience and insight of an active straight advocate in the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transsexual (GLBT) Community. Debi Lowry's son, Ian, is gay and the organizations she supports and contributes to support the rights of those individuals. Some of the storylines used in this book are drawn from the experiences of people she has met. None of the fictional parts are based solely on one individual, but on a composite of many of the people who she has encountered over the years. Being the openly accepting parent of a gay child is not easy. Parents who do not hide the fact they have a gay child run the risk of seeing a broad range of reactions. People will often ask, "What are you going to do?" "How did it happen?" They will offer apologies and sympathy. They will suggest seeking help from clergy or mental health professionals. They whisper and speak in hushed tones to others when the topic of sexuality comes up. They make comments about not having grandchildren. There is not so much concern about how the gay child is doing, but more about what will be thought of the family of the gay child.

What happens when a devout Mormon realizes that she is gay? Cathryn Lokey grew up in the Mormon Church and gladly went down the expected path of mission work, marriage, and motherhood-until she met Amy. Her world was turned upside down.

Ultimately, she finds the courage to accept herself as a lesbian in the face of bitter rejection. She forges a new path-one once literally beyond imagining-that brings her joy and fulfillment. A path worthy of a daughter of God.

Religiosity as a Predictor of Negative Attitudes Toward Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender Individuals

release date: Jan 01, 2018
Religiosity as a Predictor of Negative Attitudes Toward Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender Individuals
The purpose of the following study was to examine the influence of religiosity and spirituality on negative attitudes toward gay, lesbian, and transgender individuals. Self-identified heterosexuals (N = 259) were recruited via Amazon Mechanical Turk. Participants completed a demographics questionnaire, the Fetzer Institute Brief Multidimensional Measure of Religiousness/Spirituality: 1999, and Worthen’s (2012) Attitudes toward GLT Scales. Previous research conducted by Allport (1954) suggest religion is used by people to prevent prejudice attitudes, but also can be used as a reason to legitimize prejudiced attitudes. Research by Herek (2015), suggests people use their religious values and beliefs to maintain sexual stigma toward outgroup members such as gay, lesbian, and transgender individuals. Research by Hill (2000), suggest spirituality is a protective factor that promotes compassion toward outgroup members such as gay, lesbian, and transgender individuals. Results of this study indicated that both a person’s level of religiosity and spirituality predicted prejudiced attitudes toward gay, lesbian, and transgender individuals. These results suggest that although gay, lesbian, and transgender individuals have made progress toward equality with the legalization of gay marriage in the United States, people continue to use their religious and spiritual beliefs to maintain sexual stigma and prejudiced attitudes toward gay, lesbian, and transgender individuals.
