Falling Into Life
A Gay Exmormon's Journey
de Steven H. Lee (Esteban Cencerrado Lee-O'Neal)
Raised a sixth generation Mormon, and "Eternally Married" for sixteen years with three children, Steve takes you through the trials of growing up gay in the stringent and unforgiving world of Mormonism.
Fighting not only the bizarre doctrines and rituals of the Mormon Church, he worked his way through years of Evergreen, the Mormon Church's "Conversion Therapy" program, where a cure from homosexuality was promised him.
How does a gay Mormon come to grips with not only his own adversarial sexual orientation, but the belief system that has programmed his mind and escape relatively unharmed and overly joyous? It wasn't easy!
If you've ever wondered what kinds of secrets and unusual beliefs lie under the smiling surface of Mormondom, or how a gay member is treated, this book will humorously enlighten you.
I currently reside in Boulder County, Colorado. I have been in a committed and loving gay relationship with a man for over five years, and we raise six children together, sharing our children's successes and challenges together.
