Say Something
I'm going to be honest, because I don't know what else to do. I apologize in advance because this wont be eloquent, and it won't be pretty. A ton has changed since I last wrote. I've left BYU. I've left the church, and i've come out publicly. All fantastic,...

**
I'm sitting here, five o'clock in the morning, after a day spent battling depression, and the ever present self-doubt. Spurned on, no doubt, by Adele's crooning in my ear, I have decided to write my heartbreak at the LDS Church's most recent change. I speci...

Leaving that Dark Closet.

with and kiss. I want to love him, and feel that he loves me, but really, what

The Atonement
I haven't posted in a long time. Over the last few months, I have come to understand my sexual identity a lot better. One thing that has particularly helped me recently was an essay I was assigned in my Religions Class. The essay was about the Atonement, an...
