No More Goodbyes
Have you read this book yet? Carol Lynn Pearson wrote it. I think she’s one of the most important advocates for gay and lesbian people in the LDS church.
I brought it home once for my parents to read—along with her other book, Goodbye, I Love You. (In Goodbye, I Love You, Pearson writes about her experience marrying a homosexual man.)
Goodbye, I Love You

Just saw this one tonight. It’s R, so if you don’t do that sort of thing, you won’t like it. It’s about a lesbian couple working through marriage issues while their two children, aged 18 and 15, meet their shared biological father—a sperm donor (played by Mark Ruffalo). Julianne Moore is in it, and she’s great. So pretty.
Angels in America
An HBO-produced rendition of the award-winning play by Harold Kushner. The play itself is worth reading at least once. Includes a mixed-orientation marriage, gay Mormons, gay Jews, gay Republicans, the AIDS virus, prophets, angels, God, a missing God, the ghost of Ethel Rosenberg, and … well, you’ll just have to see it. Be prepared, though—it’s like over 300 minutes long.
