I had my first experience with Mormons For Equality three years ago (2013) when I marched with the group in the Utah Pride Parade. I had just barely come out -- only a few months prior telling my Mormon parents that I was gay.
What is it about Pride that makes Mormons so excited? I decided to ask my Mormon fellows that very question. I think you'll enjoy their responses as much as I did. After all, nothing I could compose could compare to the heartfelt messages I received in response to my question.
