About the Book
In this collection of Mormon short stories, the LDS Church issues a survey about sexual orientation but neglects to allow "gay" as an answer. A young couple find themselves hopelessly trapped in the temple. An anatomically male, inwardly female transgender feels guilty for holding the priesthood as a woman. A bishop's wife organizes a sex boycott among the leaders' wives until the Church agrees to ordain women. Noah explains God's childhood secret that was the real impetus behind the Flood. A lesbian has a hysterectomy to protest the Church's ban on same-sex families. A man redecorates his house with Mormon art as a surprise for his husband. A Jewish transgender tries to get a job with Deseret Book.
