Short Description: 
Gay, Mormon and happily married? Welcome to Club Unicorn

Unicorns are mythical creatures.  So is Joshua Weed; a founding member of what he calls "Club Unicorn."  Joshua is a devout and happily married Mormon.  Oh, and one "small" thing.  He is also gay.  Earlier this year, Joshua and his wife Lolly, publicly came out on his blog.   While its not uncommon for Mormons who "struggle with homosexual attraction" to marry a member of the opposite sex, Josh says he accepted his orientation long ago.  Likewise, Lolly moved forward knowing she was marrying a gay man.  For both of them, it was a decision based on love and religous devotion, not gender or sexual orientation.

Growing up Mormon and Queer

Categories:
program: 
Out Loud
program date: 
Tue, 02/07/2012

While religous belief and expression is a comfort to some, for others it can create confusion, misery and chaos. Such is the experience of many queer people who were raised Mormon. For this membership drive special of Out Loud, hear the stories of queer identified folks who come from a culture dominated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We'll hear the story of Joseph Dallin, who wrote a book about his experiences. This show was broadcast during the 2012 Winter Membership drive. If you become a member by 02/18/12 you may be able to recieve a copy of Joe's book as a thank you gift.

Later in the show we’ll hear the stories of two trans men, one who was accepted by his family, the other ... well not so much. We’ll also hear an excerpt of “Voices in Exile: Stories of Lesbian Mormons.”

How did Joseph and others cope with being members of a church that has spent millions of dollars fighting LGBT equality? How has their Mormon background influenced their current beliefs regarding religion and spirituality? Listen now to find out. Also, while your listening to this show, remember that we need your help keeping this program on the air by becoming a member of KBOO.

Our first music break features Venus Envy's 'Rhonda the Lesbo Reindeer', from their CD I'll Be a Homo for Christmas

We welcome Maisha and Sarah to the show. They are working with youth in East Portland in planning a youth dance on Jan 28 at Montavilla Community Center. The goal of this dance is to bring together lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender, queer and allied youth to socialize and support eachother.

Stephanie, who coordinates requests for speakers and trainings, offers perspective on how OSSCC work engages school districts and colleges that train future teachers. Sarah, who works with the Oregon Gay and Lesbian Law Association, shares statistics from Oregon students and from national studies done by the Gay Lesbian and Straight Educator Network . We discuss changes to Oregon Law in 2009 that added sexual orientation and gender identity to groups of youth covered under school safety policies. Oregon Safe Schools created a Safe School Toolkit for the public and schools to utilize. Currently, OSSCC is surveying school districts around Oregon to assess their policies to compare them with current state laws regarding student safety -- ALL student safety, not just lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender or queer youth. We wrap up our conversation with some encouragement for parents, guardians and anyone interested in youth safety to engage with their local schools regarding their anti-bulling policies.

The show ends with a live version of Amazing Grace by Ani DiFranco.
