This week on Neshamas, some of our writers felt trapped or confused about being gay in the Orthodox world.
In a poignant post called Where Do I Belong, a woman who has known she is a lesbian for a long time feels alone and scared at the prospect of being married to a man.
In Open To A Woman, a woman who was once married to a man, is hoping to start a new life in which she can be more accepted for being gay.
And, in The Tinkerbell In Religion, A Neshama who is interested in yoga and alternative living, makes her more traditional father uncomfortable.
Find these and other stories by our anonymous writers on Neshamas.
