Dear Tom, I am from Central New York and familiar with both UU churches and other Churches where GLBT persons are welcome. I have attended First Unitarian Universalist Church in Dewitt. We are a very inclusive congregation. If you attend speak to the minister because she would help you find a niche. As you may have noticed the UU churches are more humanist oriented but they are welcoming. First UU is more Universalist. There are some Christian churches such as Plymouth Congregational-UCC in downtown Syracuse that is an open welcoming congregation. They are going through a transition period between ministers. Another church I am familiar with is University United Methodist Church. They ,too, are inclusive and welcoming in a less formal way.
Hope this helps.

Greetings to all,
I am a 44 yr old male living in central New York state. I
currently am a member of a Baptist church. I am a christian and love the Lord
with all my heart. A co-worker brought me to a Unitarian Universalist church
yesterday. I enjoyed it. I won't lie it was a little frightening.... : - )
But, I believe it was spirit led that I go there with her.
I have same sex attraction and find it difficult to reconcile
this with my faith. I believe the Bible but , I also know I can't stop who I am
.... I have prayed with more than mustard seed faith and I still am a
homosexual. Don't get me wrong I don't practice I have been celibate since
2003. But, I get depression sometimes because I get really down that I can't be
perfect..... My co-worker has been going through a spiritual quest of her own
and we share with one another. (She goes to UU church in the AM and a Baptist
church in the evenings on Sundays)
Perhaps this is inappropriate for this discussion group if so
please let me know and I will not post anymore. I am looking forward to
