    Thanks for the podcast. Good luck to all of you on your journeys. One editing suggestion. When I read the headline I thought the podcast was going to be about coming out to families members about Mormon dissaffection/apostacy. Maybe the title could be changed to including the podcast is about coming out as gay. Nevertheless, it was interesting and worth the listen.

    Thank you for this podcast! I would love to be able to contact Becky-so much of your experience resonated with me and I am currently in the position you described of having a new sense of who I am, but feeling very alone and unsure how to even begin to navigate this new identity.
    Anyways, thank you. It’s so helpful to hear the experiences of others.
