In part three of her interview, Kim talks us through the ways in which the law of chastity differs between homosexual and heterosexual members of the LDS church and explains her shift from self identifying as “Same Sex Attracted” to “Gay or Lesbian–but I don’t act on it!” and, finally, to simply owning the term “Lesbian.” In the last few minutes of the interview, Kim really opens her heart to us, as she describes how, after deciding to date women, she was surprised to find that not only did she not feel guilty, but she was able to maintain a close relationship with the Spirit and could still feel the Lord’s guidance in her life. This video is rough and raw in it’s style and fitting of such an intimate and off-the-cuff exchange.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.

(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 LGBT and Mormon.)
