How to Overcome Same-sex Attraction

Same-sex attraction refers to a person’s emotional, romantic, or sexual attraction to individuals of the same gender. In other words, it’s when someone is drawn to or experiences romantic feelings for people of their own sex. Same-sex attraction is a natural and diverse aspect of human sexuality, and individuals who experience it may identify as gay, lesbian, or bisexual.

It is important to note that same-sex attraction is not a disorder or something that needs to be overcome. Sexual orientation is a complex and inherent part of who someone is, and attempting to change it can lead to significant psychological distress. In recent years, there has been increased recognition and acceptance of diverse sexual orientations, and efforts have been made to promote understanding and tolerance.

Sexual attraction is a complex subject. The origins of sexual feelings often lie deeply hidden within the individual psyche. We believe they are best explained in terms of developmental psychology and trait development, and that there is no single “one-size-fits-all” theory to account for them. In spite of this, it is feasible, to gain valuable insights into some of the factors that may have contributed to the shaping of your present state of mind. There are a variety of tools to help in this process, including: individual or group therapy, prayer, healthy relationships, discipleship, reading and writing in a journal. In turn, these insights can be useful in freeing you from emotional bondage and enabling you to live according to your consciously chosen values.

If you are feeling conflicted about your sexual orientation or experiencing distress, it’s recommended to seek support from understanding friends, family, or mental health professionals. Acceptance and self-discovery are essential parts of the journey to a healthy and fulfilling life.

Here are some steps you might consider:

  • Change For the Right Reasons (the Glory Of God):

After all, homosexuality is nothing but “lust, porn, and sexual immorality,” sins that are applicable only to gay people and never to straight ones. But don’t change to make others happy or to save your family. Change only because we (a group of random people) are telling you that that’s the only way for you to “become normal, and acceptable to God.”

  • Always Read Scripture:

Who knew curing homosexuality could be so much like doing high school homework? We’ll provide you with a few carefully-selected verses every day and follow it up with our interpretation. Read only this over and over until you have fully embraced our reading of the Bible.

  • Remove Yourself From Anything Even Remotely Gay:

Don’t watch porn (again, it’s only a gay thing), don’t go on gay websites, and most of all, certainly don’t associate with gay people. Any of those things might make you feel like your homosexuality is a natural part of your identity and can be accepted by those around you.

  • Know That You Will Be Saved If You Believe:

This is the most important lesson of all. If you truly believe in God and want to change your sinful ways, God will remove all homosexual urges from your mind. But if at the end of this 60-day therapy, you still have homosexual tendencies, then you didn’t really believe and you didn’t really want to change. Rinse and repeat.

Acceptance and understanding of one’s sexual orientation can take time. Be patient with yourself and allow the process to unfold at its own pace.


It is crucial to emphasize that embracing one’s authentic self is a positive and affirming process. If you find yourself struggling with these feelings, seeking support is a sign of strength, and there are people and resources available to help you on your journey.
