Nor do I assume. I am horrifically well aware of all the lives shattered by the evil homophobic bigotry of the LDS Church. My shoulders have been literally cried on. Sobbed on.

I’m a gay man. An activist. I’ve lived among other gay men for decades. I have known far too many fleeing the persecution and homophobia of the LDS Church.

It’s real, not an assumption.

Writer. Runner. Marine. Airman. Former LGBTQ and HIV activist. Former ActUpNY and Queer Nation. Polyglot. Middle-aged, uppity faggot.
