MHH68: A Queer Chat about the Policy Reversal

Blaire Ostler took her traditional post outside the LDS Conference Center during their biannual General Conference, holding her sign inviting attendees to “Hug a Queer *Mormon) *this year she did modify it to say “Latter Day Saint.” Join her as she shares with us her passionate queer response to the recent monumental reversal of the 2015 LGBTQ Exclusion Policy of the LDS Church that labeled “same-sex” couples as apostates and exiled their children from membership in the church. Blaire speaks to bi-erasure, what real love of others looks and feels like, and what the response to her Hug Campaign has been. Her passion and her heart are a beautiful feeling to experience!

MHH17: The LDS Inc Non-Consensual Shit Show!

Last week in Mormonism was one for the history books! Those whisperings that this conference season would be one to remember certainly did not disappoint! The Angels on Fire tackle the headlines for the past week, beginning with the Protect LDS Children March on Friday, March 30th and Crystal Legionaires, the woman who shouted “Stop Protecting Sexual Predators” during Conference.
