Your story reminds me of other tragic tales I’ve heard of Jehovah’s Witnesses disfellowshipped and shunned by friends and family because they’re transgender or gay.

The Church will tell you that isn’t their policy, but they aren’t being honest.

YouTube is filled with first-hand stories of LGBTQ teens disfellowshipped, shunned, then turned out of their homes on their 18th birthdays.

I can only imagine what happens to some of them. Is Micah an isolated story? I doubt it.
