For those who wouldn't feel comfortable discussing their sexuality with their leaders, my suggestion would be get new ones.  Your religious leaders are there as a help in your spiritual journey, and everything about you from your shoe size to your sexual orientation is a part of that.  If you are uncomfortable speaking of anything important with your religious leaders, then then you need to find a group where you do feel comfortable, not only being yourself, but speaking about it.

What if sexuality doesn't matter and the leader doesn't want to know?

I am, arguably, a spiritual leader.  And, quite frankly, I can't see where people's sexuality matters a damn unless they're running into problems.  I don't care if someone's gay, straight, transgender, etc.  I care that the person is comfortable with themselves and honest with themselves, but after that?  Not my problem!

Does it HAVE to matter?
