Mormon Gays in Mormon Plays, Part III

Posted by Katya

2009 Of the nine plays I (originally) found that met my criteria, I think it’s no accident that almost half of them have premiered since 2008. Whatever the tensions were between the LDS Church and the gay and lesbian community before that year, the heated battle over California’s Proposition 8 has increased them exponentially. Whether […]

Posted by Seraphine

So, various people have expressed interesting in hearing how my experiences with dating (especially on-line dating sites) have been going.

Parenting Theories, Love, and the Inevitability of Grief

Posted by Eve

[Recent reflections at FMH hereby prompt me to broadcast my own half-baked reflections on parenting theories. That said, this isn't a critique of either Stephanie's or Not Ophelia's approaches to parenting, both of which strike me as eminently reasonable; in any case, the content substantially predates their posts. Rather, this is my current take on […]
