From a gay Mormon's POV
13 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

There has never been a movie that has resounded so perfectly as this one had. As I am writing this, I am currently a 16 year old boy and have undergone so much strife, pain, and heartache just from living, more than the average 16 year old should ever have. In "The Family: A Proclomation to the World" they clearly state over and over that marriage between man and woman is a sacred covenant ordained of God. This had to be the greatest cause of my lack of faith in the church, even though I was born and raised in it. The teachings of the evilness of homosexuality, a part of someone that is neither chosen nor even wanted in most cases, led me to think that there was something wrong with the church since I had to pretend to be someone I'm not all for the sake of not wanting to be looked at with disgust or shame. It is truly a hell to have to grow up trying hard to be someone else, that I don't even know who i really am anymore. Since I found out I was gay, and as everyone else around me started maturing, it grew increasingly harder to socialize to even the closest friends I had, since I was lying to them about such a huge, unforgettable part of me. As a result, it is because of this forced fake lifestyle, I believe it has caused me to be the socially awkward person I am today. I honestly believe that if I could have been honest with my parents and everyone around me and been encouraged to be who I am from the start, I would have been able to have developed better basic socialization skills as well as a better faith in a church that I grew up in. I'm sorry for the excessive length of this, but I had to express myself somehow, since I can't say this to my own mom. Thank you if you actually read this...
