Because being 100% gay doesn’t make 100% of who I am. Gay, French & Mormon Fundamentalist in the UK.
Some will imagine an angry and flamboyant gay activist from Utah set out to trash the compound he turned his back on.
I am actually a well-travelled Frenchman based in the U.K. who loves Mormonism & became a Fundamentalist 10 years ago despite being gay.
There are many stereotypes out there about gay men, about Mormons and about Mormon Fundamentalists. And there are many people out there telling me you cannot be gay and Mormon. But why should being 100% gay make 100% of who you are?
The overarching theme of this blog is the exploration of the duality experienced by most Mormons with same-sex attraction: the conflict and acceptance that both your sexual orientation and your spiritual beliefs are innate parts of you.
I hope to dispel some myths, bring some understanding and offer support. I promise honesty.
So, how did a gay Frenchman become a Mormon Fundamentalist? And how does he make it work? Scroll down and find out

ABOUT THIS BLOG
So, how did a gay Frenchman become a Mormon Fundamentalist?
Don’t expect a fascinating transition à la Kimmy Schmidt or even the promotion of a lifestyle but the depiction of a delicate balancing act.
This is my story, with Mormon history (critically revisited) in between.
Mormon History (Revisited) is an ongoing series of posts about my sometimes unorthodox rendition of the Mormon movement since its early days.
This is me now, and why I created this blog.
