Kim says she is “not a typical Mormon mother”–she is open about being a lesbian and remains a committed Mormon despite negative experiences and excommunication. The founder of the support group Disciples 2, Kim allows members of the online support group to speak from their own experience, even when those experiences do not reflect her own.

In part one, Kim walks Kendall through the difference between the way lesbian Mormons and gay Mormons experience and communicate their experience of homosexuality. She opens up about feelings of confusion as she worked to make her marriage to a man thrive while feeling there was “something wrong with her.” This video is rough and raw in it’s style and fitting of such an intimate and off-the-cuff exchange.

(The views expressed in this interview do not necessarily reflect those of the producers of Far Between but are reflective of some aspects of what it means to be homosexual and Mormon today.)
