RE: My Sexuality/Faith

Dear followers,

I was publicly outed (the process of revealing a secret held closely, most commonly used by LGBTQ+ members to describe the revelation of sexuality) today by a fellow member of the community. Today, Sunday, February 2, 2020, I am publicly announcing that I am Pansexual and am claiming myself today to be a part of the LGBTQ community. I use pansexuality as an umbrella term to mean I will show romance, love, and affection to anyone, regardless of gender.

I am a saved Christian. The God I serve loves all and forgives all sin, regardless of the “severity” or the “degree” of the sin being committed. Most southern Christians, being raised are taught that “homosexuality is a sin” and that “it is wrong”. It may be wrong in your views, but the God I serve instructs us all to not judge and to accept all. I am a disabled, pansexual, Christian, and today, as I write this, I have pride in that statement.

I will loose some followers for this. If you can’t see me for who I am and accept me, then I don’t want to be associated with you.

I appreciate all who have supported and continue to support me. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.


Derek Ivan Schmitz
