Gay, Mormon and happily married? Welcome to Club Unicorn

Unicorns are mythical creatures.  So is Joshua Weed; a founding member of what he calls "Club Unicorn."  Joshua is a devout and happily married Mormon.  Oh, and one "small" thing.  He is also gay.  Earlier this year, Joshua and his wife Lolly, publicly came out on his blog.   While its not uncommon for Mormons who "struggle with homosexual attraction" to marry a member of the opposite sex, Josh says he accepted his orientation long ago.  Likewise, Lolly moved forward knowing she was marrying a gay man.  For both of them, it was a decision based on love and religous devotion, not gender or sexual orientation.

Remember your Roots: A brunch supporting the next generation of rural queer youth is this Sunday Oct 3 @ 10:30am  In Other Words.  A group of high school youth and their families from Baker City, Oregon have started a Gay Straight Alliance at their school. On Sunday, October 3rd, they will be visiting Portland to receive an Equality Champion award for their bravery of being out and proud in a historically conservative community and their dedication to promoting tolerance of all genders & sexualities. Feel free to bring an offering of support or gift from Portland to the queer youth of rural Oregon for them to take home and share with their community – books, CDs, movies that mean something to you!  Brought to you by Rural Organizing Project
