Beginning excerpt from the article “How I Went from ‘Robert’ to ‘Claudia’ – A Fake Woman” on the PFOX website: “In 1988, everything was going wrong for me. I had just moved to Minnesota with my mother and sister. I had recently fallen in love with a girl I met in Minnesota, but she did not love me. I did not get along with my sister who put me out on the street. I lived in homeless shelters and one day when I was in a Kmart I read Renee Richard’s book, the famous transgender tennis player. I thought I would be happier as a woman even though I was born male. I was 25 years old when I decided to become a woman. I was also a straight man.”

Excerpt from ex-gay Charlene E. Hios’ article “How Do I Respond When A Loved One Says ‘I’m gay'” on the PFOX website.

This is especially true if they are your child.”

“First, remember this is not about you. It is about that person. The desire for your loved one is that they be reconciled to God from this sin. You can, and must, extend God’s love while holding to a position that homosexuality is sin. (more…)

A link on the new site’s front page contains an interview with Elder D. Todd Christofferson giving information about the website and the Mormon Church’s position on homosexuality. Some excerpts: “We’re not endeavoring here to try to cover the waterfront and address every issue that could be, and needs to be, addressed in different settings relating to same-sex attraction. But the idea is to open us, all of us, to greater understanding. And you’ll hear stories and experiences from quite a diversity of people and backgrounds and perceptions.

Excerpts from Florence Hubbs’ testimony on the PFOX website: … “In Feb 1993, Karen & I were to celebrate our 9th year together. I know I had great plans for the day.

I was deeply crushed, and through my tears ask God if he really cared. Are you real? God started bringing people into my life to show me his Love. Also the joy of being a friend with other women without sexual attractions.” (more…)
