Leaving religions has repeatedly resulted in me losing a large number of friends. First from Catholic -> Pagan. Later from Pagan -> Atheist.
It's not even a mean thing. It's just... we have less in common after that, and we drift away.
Beach City is our private beach-side sanctuary for close friends and awesome folks. We are various flavors of trans, queer, non-binary, polyamorous, disabled, furry, etc.
