References to abuse/neglect and religion
I think it's sad to say that a part of gay culture in the US is that almost universally we have all experienced the difficulty of living with religious parents and families and oftentimes abandonment and abuse. I think that the mental health baseline that a lot of LGBT people start on is totally different than that of non-LGBT people, and a good chunk of our earlier years are spent recovering from some of the terrible things we have experienced.
