LGBT Stories: Mormon Church Excommunicates Young Man, Forcing Him To Come Out To Parents

Ryan OldroydTR


Guestblogger Nathan Manske and Marquise Lee just finished a 4 month, 50 state tour of the United States collecting stories for their I'm From Driftwood site. We'll be sharing some of the stories they collected along with some of the insight into what they saw. They're still encouraging people to submit their written stories via IFD.

Driftwood When we were heading to Utah from Wyoming, we decided to make an effort to not actively seek out Mormon stories. We wanted to just let the stories come to us and continue our practice of not giving anyone a topic. "Any story from your life that you want to share and that's important to you" is the most I'll give them. Sure enough, though...the Mormon stories found us. Of the six stories we collected in Utah, four of them have something to do with being Mormon.
