The Longest Sunday Part 2: the Parents
I’ve really struggled with this post.  It’s been two weeks since I came out to my
parents, and in all honesty I’m not sure how I feel about it.  Whereas my bishop was very understanding and
compassionate, my parents were much more…orthodox. Two days before ...

The Longest Sunday of my Life, Part 1: The Bishop
A little over a week ago I sat down and had “the talk” with
my bishop.  Then I drove down to my
parent’s house to have “the talk” with them. It was the longest Sunday of my life.  On the mission Sundays were my least favorite day.  We’d spend all day scramb...

Stake Conference and Home Teaching
Yesterday was stake conference, and ever since the week
before when sacrament meeting was all about the sanctity of marriage I felt an
ominous sense of foreboding.  I tried to
dismiss it by telling myself I was just being paranoid, so I went to both the
Sat...

Miracle of the MOHO Directory
I’m a different person now than I was in September.  It’s been five months since I even started
thinking about it, and only three months since I accepted myself as being gay.  Now I’m going on dates with guys and enjoying my
gay Mormon life.  Sometimes I wo...

The Evolving Nature of My Nature.
I used to obsess over the possible reasons I turned out gay.  During the years when I was fasting and
praying for my “SSA” to go away I thought if I could identify why I had it I
could beat it.  I eventually convinced
myself that masturbation and porn had s...

This post contains adult situations and may not be suitable
for children or prudes. Up until September I was a good Mormon boy.  I was “struggling with SGA,” not that I’d
admit it, even to myself, but it was a struggle nonetheless.  I had read everything th...

Girl trouble, part 2
Well, it’s done.  I
had the dreaded DTR with…let’s call her Lucrezia. I’ve come out to about five people so far, but each time I
pretty much knew that they would take it well. 
This was the first time I had no idea what the outcome would be. It sucked. Ok, ...

Girl trouble
I was hoping that coming to terms with being gay would
eliminate girl trouble.  Someday, it will
be exciting to deal with boy trouble instead of girl trouble.  There’s a giant hurdle to jump through first. I've been dating a girl from work since September. ...

Option Two: live a celibate life in the church
I've started this post over and over again, but somehow I just
can’t manage to put all my thoughts on celibacy together.  In short, I don’t like it.  I don’t want to be a Mormon monk. For a while I tried to convince myself I could do it.  It’s no different ...

I didn't always know
Most of the coming out stories I've read talk about how they
“always knew, but…”  I’m kind of
jealous.  I didn't know until a few
months ago.  Granted, I should have known a long time ago.  In fact, looking back, it should have been
painfully obvious that I...
