I was fortunate, as strange as it sounds, to be bi-racial in a very racist part of the country growing up. So, hatred from others for who I was, happened all the time.
My mother used the Bahai writings to teach me to love myself for who I was. She said God made me exactly as I supposed to be. She also told me to pray for the ignorance of others. I was able to internalize these teaches to deal with my sexuality.
