He was a rising star in the "gay rights" movement, but Michael Glatze now declares not only has he given up activism he's no longer a homosexual.
Glatze who had become a frequent media source as founding editor of Young Gay America magazine tells the story of his transformation in an exclusive column published today by WND.
Although Glatze cut himself off from the homosexual community about a year and a half ago, he says the column likely will surprise some people.
"This will actually be news to anybody I used to relate to," he told WND.
The radical change in his life, Glatze recalls, began with inner "promptings" he now attributes to God.
"I hope I can share my story," he said. "I feel strongly God has put me here for a reason. Even in the darkest days of late-night parties, substance abuse and all kinds of things when I felt like, 'Why am I here, what am I doing?' there was always a voice there.
"I didn't know what to call it, or if I could trust it, but it said 'hold on.'"
Glatze said he became aware of homosexual feelings at about the age of 14 and publicly declared himself "gay" at age 20. Finally, after a decade in which his leadership role in the homosexual activist world grew but alongside it, a mysterious inner conflict he says he finally was "liberated."
In fact, he writes in his WND column today, "'coming out' from under the influence of the homosexual mindset was the most liberating, beautiful and astonishing thing I've ever experienced in my entire life."
Before "coming out" in his column today, Glatze contacted WND Managing Editor David Kupelian after reading his book, "

I expect he'll find it soon enough. He sounds like another Apollos in the making.
I was going to say “Great Minds think alike,” but here the Holy Spirit is testifying to the truth!
Most times I use a fishing analogy (see the tagline), God got his hook in me, and though I fought and sometimes ran the line off, eventually he boated me.

Let’s hope and pray he is a pied piper leading many out of the sinful lifestyle, and bringing them to Christ.
Stick with God, pal....trust in the Lord. And ignore the naysayers that say He doesn’t exist, and ignore the liars telling you that God endorses homosexuality. Everyone has some burden to bear, so yoke placed upon them. Attraction to the same sex isn’t a sin...acting on it is. Just remember that. The Lord will find you a good woman to help you in this life if you trust in Him.
God sure knows how to keep the line from breaking!
I congratulate this guy since he seems to have wanted to change and succeeded. Still, I wonder if he is now attracted to women or just ignoring his same-sex desires.
"Looking back on his old lifestyle, Glatze told WND whenever he had a sense that he was doing something wrong, "I would I just attribute it to, 'that's just the way life is.'"
"If ever I were to question anything, [my colleagues] would say, 'You're such an idealist.'"
Glatze said he thought opponents of homosexual activism were "mean and crazy, and they wanted to hurt me."
"I thought they were out to get me," he said. "They made me really, really mad and scared, I think. I wanted them to go away."
As I said, I congratulate him on making the change he wanted, but it sounds like this guy had some problems besides being attracted to men.. I'm sure there are lots of gay people out there who would tell their colleagues to quit being such whores, that pro-family activists aren't evil but just ideologically opposed, that nothing about same-sex desire makes you a robot unable to control and channel your own behavior.
I have never known a truly bisexual man. Everyone I’ve known was a homosexual in denial....
That said....I am happy for this fellow. I hope it works.
Aren’t you a joy to be around. Must be nice to be perfect.
A little more explanation might be in order?
Here in the South, we have a fair number of homosexuals who tried to hide it with wives and families...and everyone I know of was a disaster.
I do not believe straight men experiment with homosexuality though I believe some straight women do....especially if high or even some who find women less threatening. Women playing with other women seems to be more common than in the past...sort of a pansexual epidemic.
That said...I hope this works for him
With God, all things are possible.
God bless him. I wish him all the luck in the world in his new journey of hope and faith.
There is no such thing as a “homosexual” or a “bi-sexual”.
There are only people who “think” they are “homosexual” or “bi-sexual” and choose to live
a “homosexual” or a “bi-sexual” lifestyle.
There goes his unemployment benefits!
“Let’s pray for the man.”
Satan is never pleased when one slips away from him.
Perhaps his new journey will take him on the path to date my daughter or even your daughter or sister.
Now, wouldn't that be Wonderful!
Do you know everyone?
