Hi, I'm Karalyn
I was a mormon.
I was raised LDS but my family didn’t always attend. As a teen, I served in the class presidencies all through YW.

I realized I was a lesbian when I was in 6th grade. Between 9th & 10th grade I came out to my mom who wasn’t surprised at all. I didn’t come out to my dad until 2 years ago as he was planning marriage to my stepmom.
My mom tried hard to help me find a way to negotiate being lesbian and Mormon. But there was no logical path to follow where I could maintain my membership and still be in a happy relationship with a woman. A little over a year ago we started attending Community of Christ. When the policy change happened I realized I had found my home in Community of Christ. It is here where I’m not seen as broken or a mistake. It’s here that I have a place at the table.
