In churches, synagogues and mosques across the United States, religious teaching and texts are often cited in disapproving of LGBTQ people. As a result, many LGBTQ believers feel they have no choice but to leave. Many end up rejecting religion altogether; others find a place in faith communities that are welcoming. But increasingly, some LGBTQ religious people are continuing to serve and worship even where they are officially considered in violation of divine law or are barred from leadership. In many cases, they're able to find a particular house of worship that that has attracted other LGBTQ people in similar circumstances.
