Wow Derek I really admire you for your courage to share your story. I felt like I was watching a video of myself. The experiences you shared from your mission and other parts of your life really resonated with me. I was closeted the entire time I was at BYU. I appreciate what you’re doing here. Hopefully your courage will help other gay mormons realize that God loves them just the way he made them.
Thank you, Derek, for your courage. I attended BYU and rejoice in the progress it’s made — and pray for continued progress.
