This is Gonna Be Big

I have epic unofficial news for you that may change your life forever. I think I'm allowed to share it. If not, then... you didn't hear it from me.

A handful of the writing powerhouses in the gay Mormon world (and me!?!?) are teaming up to share their message with the universe. And, in the very near future, we're starting a blog.

For the first time in world history, you'll be able to find and interact with all the sort-of-but-not-really-famous people you never knew about before you learned about this subculture of subcultures. Faithful gay Mormon bloggers aren't all that common. You find pieces all the time - sort of like the Indian shooting a star on the wrapper of a Tootsie-Pop - but the whole deal is far less frequent. A Mormon blogger here, a gay Mormon there, a faithful Mormon there. But if you keep looking, you'll find one eventually.

Look no further. If you don't like my straight-up-the-line style of writing, there's another faithful gay Mormon author who's passionately funny. Others who are happily married. Some who are crazy smart. Collectively, we may not represent the entire mass of faithful Mormons with same-sex attraction, but we're closer than we were on our own. At least I am. Not everyone is YSA.

So that's the epic news. (Gay) Mormon Guy isn't going to die, so when we launch, you can expect updates both there and here. Our hope is to be a voice in the conversation... to give hope to those who need it... and to spread the message of love and understanding that Christ taught.

So clear out some room from your blogging subscription list. Daily updates may be on the horizon. And stayed riveted to your screen or phone or whatever... I'll post the link when we go live.


  1. I'm a long time reader of yours, GMG, and I am _really_ excited for this. Keep us posted!

  2. Definitely BIG! And it's definitely time!


  3. Keep it up! I'm really looking forward to this!

  4. First thing that came to my mind: "Avengers, assemble!"

  5. This IS big!!!! So excited to see!

  6. The modern Knights of the Round Table. Looking forward to this.

  7. How will this be different than the other gay Mormon bloggers that exist? E.g.,

    1. Specifically that group? It won't be different at all. That's the exact group that is beginning sometime very soon. I'm going to be part of the group that will be the new bloggers at Northern Lights.


Comment Rules:

(G)MG is how I write to you. Commenting is one way to write to me.

If you want your comment published: No swearing, graphic content, name-calling of any kind, or outbound links to anything but official Church sites.

In addition, comments must be 100% relevant, funny, uplifting, helpful, friendly... well-written, concise, and true. Disparaging comments often don't meet those standards. Comments on (G)MG are personal notes to me, not part of a comment war. You are not entitled to have your ideas hosted on my personal blog. There are a zillion places for that, and only one (G)MG.

And I'd suggest writing your comment in Word and pasting it. That way Blogger won't eat it if it's over the word limit.
