2. Yeah seriously
One reason I picked my therapist is the fact that she's gay. I went through hell as a teenager getting sent to an "ex-gay" pyschiatrist.

Oddly enough, it was a Catholic priest who got my mom to not think being gay was a sin. I'd recommend him to any gay person, honestly, but obviously not all are as good as him.
