My Story:
A good Mormon boy until my mission, when I heard something in a General Conference talk that made me realise the philosophical basis of my testimony was flawed. I sat on the fence for almost my entire mission, but finally made the decision to leave the church a month or two before my two years were up. I still finished an "honourable" mission (although finishing it did not seem at all honourable to me), but stopped my church activity immediately upon arriving home. Now I'm living happily being "out", both in the church sense, and as a gay man.
Interests and Hobbies:
Piano, Science, Maths, Studying, Traveling, Thinking, Introspecting, Reading, Writing, Family History
Favorite activity after mormonism?
Studying
If you went on an LDS mission, where and when did you go?

My experience as a gay Mormon

Posted on November 6, 2011 at 4:09am 2 Comments

I wrote this for my sister, who was curious about what it was like for me growing up in the Mormon faith as a gay youth, but I addressed it to a wider audience. Here it is for general readership; maybe it'll help someone.

Well Jeez, at least we're about the same height.  And I don't know why I always get small dogs, because I really do love just about every dog I meet.  As well as the neighbor's goats, horses, chickens, you name it.   Glad you liked my town.  More and more free thinkers are moving in and changing the tone of things, if you will.  It's more interesting.

Oh Jesus, Joseph, and Mary, my cover is blown.  Yes, Sammy is the mini-weinie dog, but honestly, I love the name and would have named a kid that anyway.  My son's expecting a child, and we'll find out the gender on the 20th, so who knows what they'll think up?  Well, I know what they've thought up for a girl, and that's why I'm hoping it's a boy.

Welcome Sammy, and I have a Sammy in my household, so it's one of my favorite names.
