Why I Am Marching in Gay Pride As a Mormon

You brought me to tears yet again.

I know this is a little trite, but every journey starts with a single step. This may be the first of many steps, to be sure, but it IS a step! I know it will all turn out OK, and you will be OK. John, you are amazing!

Why should we mourn or think our lot is hard?
’Tis not so; all is right.
Why should we think to earn a great reward
If we now shun the fight?
Gird up your loins; fresh courage take. Our God will never us forsake;
And soon we’ll have this tale to tell—
All is well! All is well!

Be well, I am honored to have you in our Mormon family.

THANK YOU, Bro. Winfield!

I was telling some of my fellow marchers this past Saturday I would love to sing this at Pride on Sunday. Whenever we sing it at Church, I weep, because for me it is about my trek toward final reconciliation... I often wonder, will I die before my journey's through?

Thank you, thank you!
