No More Strangers: LGBT Mormon Forum is a blog by and about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Mormons, and our family and allies in and around the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
We are in different places in terms of our relationship with the LDS Church. Some of us are active in the Church and fiercely committed to our testimony and to the Gospel. Some of us wrestle with doubt and/or faith. Some are firmly post-Mormon, though concerned about the state of affairs in LGBT Mormondom. We bring with us expertise as teachers, scientists, writers, coaches, therapists, activists, theologians, and thinkers.
We seek to address a range of topics, in diverse voices and styles. Some of us bring an edgier, more political perspective to the table. Others rely on laughter to dispel demons. Some of us love digging into the scriptures and bringing theological reflection to real-life struggles. Others bring a more devotional, more spiritually connected perspective.
We will reflect on the LGBT Mormon experience, but we will also examine larger questions in our Church and society from our unique perspectives, bringing our faith and our wrestling with issues related to sexuality and gender identity to our reflections on current events and the human condition. We hope to challenge ourselves and our readers.
Our one overarching commitment is that whatever we are or ever were to one another, the one thing we are no more and will never more be is strangers.
