There's a lot of information about the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan
Community Churches denomination (the UFMCC states that it "...plays a vital
role in addressing the spiritual needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and
transgendered community around the world") at URL:

There's also a bunch of interesting information about homosexuality and AIDS
from a Christian perspective by Dr. Gene Chase of Messiah College at URL:

Finally, if you're interested in what some militant homosexuals think about
religion, you can check out the "Queer Resources Directory" which has a
section called "Queers and Religion" at URL:

Hope this helps.
