Latter Day Lesbian

By Latter Day Lesbian
An ex-Mormon gay girl trying to figure out life.

Hi. We’re Mary and Shelly. Together we’re telling the story of Shelly, the Latter-Day Lesbian. She was born and raised Mormon, got married young, birthed 7 kids, left the religion, came out of the closet, got divorced, and at this point she’s just trying to make sense of it all. So now what? It’s life, and we wanna talk about it! Join us for some laughs and some tears. It’s raw and honest, funny, painful and hopeful all at once. Now playing on your favorite podcast app.

Latter Day Lesbian 17 - Hie to Kolob
Where the heck is Kolob? We're still not sure, but we definitely talk about it ad nauseam in this episode. Put on your spacesuits and get ready to blast off to wherever God is... Or maybe just have a blast spending 45 minutes with Mary and Shelly. Enjoy! Music provided by Purple Planet: https://www.purple-planet.com

Latter Day Lesbian 15 - Tribute to Korihor and Jezebel
In this episode Shelly reads from the "For the Strength of Youth" manual...the same pamphlet her Bishop cited as "scripture," which he used to justify taking away her temple recommend. Wait a minute -- is this stuff completely fake? We also started a new segment called "The Mormon Phrase of the Day." Aw man, how do you pick just one??? Thanks for listening, hope you enjoy!

Latter Day Lesbian 13 - Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon / A.K.A. The Rant
Welcome to lucky number 13! In this episode Shelly talks about that very special time when she blossomed into womanhood. Warning: this description gets a bit graphic (as usual, Shelly's mouth filter is on the fritz). We also continue the saga of the big church exit, which gets her a bit riled up (breathe, Shelly). Buckle up kids, this ride is bumpy! Music provided by Purple Planet: https://www.purple-planet.com

Latter Day Lesbian 12 - Cadaver Gums
Shelly's undergoing gum surgery soon, and in this episode we discuss where those things come from. Ew. We also talk about the first time we both encountered a gay person, and Shelly continues her story about leaving the church and her interview with that beer-hating bishop. It's a good one - enjoy!

Latter Day Lesbian 11 - Shower Beer
What, you don't drink beer in the shower? Some say it makes a great conditioner. In fact, Shelly claimed that once when her kids asked her if she'd been drinking. True story. In this episode, Shelly also begins the painful retelling of leaving the church, and Mary describes her second coming...out. Oy! But now the spoilers are over and it's time to get to the actual listening. Hope you enjoy! Music provided by Purple Planet: https://www.purple-planet.com

Latter Day Lesbian 10 - Pizza Porn
Don't worry, we're not giving up the podcast to be porn stars. But if we did, let's just say pizza would be involved. Yep, it seems strange to us too.  Welcome to our 10th episode! Shelly comes out again, this time to her parents. Since we've been teasing this one for weeks we thought it was time to get to it already. Jeez. Hope you enjoy, and please share with a friend if you feel like it...and maybe even if you don't. Spanks, er, thanks! Music provided by Purple Planet: https://www.purple-planet.com

Latter Day Lesbian 8 - Men In Suits
This episode stumbled upon a big trigger for Shelly. It gets emotional, but we managed to balance the discussion with a revelation about racist panty hose. Ridiculous. Also, we read a sweet yet slightly heartbreaking letter from Angelica. Hang in there, though, because it has a happy ending. Thanks for writing in, Angelica!
