I was raised in an extreme mormon household. When I came out at 16, I was beaten down and broken down. I was sent to sex therapists (all mormon) and finally ran away at 17 when they threatened to send me to a "gender recognition camp." Now, I'm 22, and I got married this year to a beautiful, wonderful woman. Even though we have our own home, our own family, we're witness to the hatred my family and their religion brings to us daily. Just this year, I resigned from the church, and got a conformation letter. It was such a celebratory day for us...but I can't believe how much they still manage to take away from not only our lives, but the lives of people they don't even know or understand. That trailer made me cry, because I've been on both sides. I've been brainwashed and I was trained to hate anyone who was different, until I was able to admit to myself that I'm different. These people in the church who said they were my family, and my friends, turned on me. I've been called disgusting. I've been beat up, brought down, and spit on in every way. When my son died at birth, my mother told me I brought it on myself, because of my lifestyle. I am angry. And I believe every other homosexual person, or anyone who has been discriminated against by this institution SHOULD be angry. It's time to bring their actions to light, and I'm glad someone is finally doing this.
