Shoot First Talk Later is a podcast where those being interviewed have their portraits taken and then are interviewed. Aaron McManus and Angel Arrocha discuss the founding of the Mormon Church, being Gay and Mormon, and the work of Affirmation in the episode titled: “Gay Mormons.”
Jena discusses being Mormon, being gay, and the realities of being in a mixed-orientation marriage. She shares how conflicted LDS people are when they realize they are gay, as the truth of that equals the truth of the gospel, and how she is trying to balance those two truths.
These stories include a gay man who was once a homeless youth who now seeks to help youth in need, a transgender woman who has found a new community within a coven of witches, a gay Navajo man who is living in two worlds, and a family providing a safe place and community for LGBTQ youth and their families.
