Hey all! I thought it would be cool to create one of these “challenges” for LGBTA+ people of faith. Instead of the typical 30 day format, I shortened it to 14 days – just two weeks! – so it’s more manageable. You can start the challenge any day you like, today or even months from now: answer one question a day; and if you miss a day, no worries, just start where you left off. If a day asks a question you don’t want to answer, just skip it, or make up your own for that day!
While this is a Christian-focused blog, I want to emphasize that this challenge is for folks of all faiths. We all have powerful stories to share, both similar to one another and beautifully unique – the more faith experiences we gather, the richer this challenge will become.
Either submit your responses here to queerly-christian for us to post, or else tag your daily posts with #LGBT Faith Challenge so that we can check them out! And feel free to reblog this post so the challenge spreads.
Update: for anyone who wants to be going at the same pace as others doing the challenge, the official start day will be Monday, September 18!
Describe your LGBTA+ identity – come up with an image or symbol for it if you like.
Describe your faith, including an image or symbol if you like.
Which did you discover first: your faith or your LGBTA+ identity?
Where are you in your faith journey? Your journey as an LGBTA+ person?
How has your gender and/or orientation impacted your faith life negatively? What about positively?
Post a photograph, a poem, a passage of your holy book, or other art that relates to your identity as an LGBTA+ person of faith.
How have people of your faith reacted to your gender/orientation? How have people in the LGBTA+ community reacted to your faith?
Do you participate in any communities or groups that celebrate both your faith and your LGBTA+ identity? If not, would you want to?
What’s the biggest obstacle you face as an LGBTA+ person of faith?
What prayers, holy words, songs, ideas, etc. comfort you when people try to tell you your identities are incompatible?
What goals do you have for yourself?
What would you like to say to people who try to put you down about your identity?
What would you like to say to other LGBTA+ people of faith who are struggling right now, or to your younger self?
What makes you proud to be an LGBTA+ person of faith?
30 Days of Corsets Challenge - Day 4: How often do you wear
It’s been a bit of a roller coaster ride in my level of
consistency of the years. Currently,
along with this fun “tell all” 30 Days of Corsets Challenge, I’m working to get
back into wearing corsets for the purpose of waist training with some more
regularity. While, at one point in time,
I easily wore a corset for 20 hours per day, 6 days per week; recently, I’ve
only accomplished about 10-15 hours of wear for an entire week.
Yet, every day is a chance for me to get back into the
habit! My goal is to work back up to 12
hours per day, 5 days per week. Because
I’ve been so persistent in the past, I foresee my body being able to accept
this regularity within the month, so long as I keep at it.
Day Four: In clothes from the Kingdom they’re not from~

AYYY I MANAGE TO GET THIS UP TODAY~! I didn’t think I would because b-day stuff going on. xDD; I wasn’t sure whether to draw a Nohrian class or casual clothes, so I drew both! Nohrian reclass for me would be Mercenary~ I believe it’s equivalent base class of the Samurai class from Hoshido~
so grateful for the overwhelming love for rosamund already !!! wow you guys are sweet ❤️❤️💕❤️💕💕❤️💕
also yes i love to read tags
rosamund as a different class: probably a dark mage. her magic, skill, and luck stats are her greatest assets, so it’s best to make her a mage or some kind of assassin. hypothetically if she ever became an adventurer she would insist on using a shining bow > <
i might map out all her possible re classes later. this whole fatesona thing is damn fun 👍
