    Daniel —

    Thanks for cross-posting these here. I’m really glad you’re creating a Mormon Stories channel with this focus, as the overlap of LGBT and Mormon issues have been incredibly important in the past couple of decades. Maybe sometime we could do an episode where I focus on my ‘gay Mormon story’ particularly; this obviously was part of what John D. and I were talking about, but not the primary focus.
