Mormon Stories - LDS

In this episode of Mormon Stories, we continue our series on Transgender/Intersex education within Mormonism by interviewing Alex Autry.  Alex discusses his transition from female to male as a post-Mormon teen, including:

  • His early feelings and experiences with gender as a child
  • His upbringing in the LDS Church and feelings of disconnection while involved in Young Women’s activities
  • The constant desire to receive the Priesthood along with all the other boys
  • How his strong and orthodox testimony served as a barrier to confronting his gender identity
  • The feelings of relief when his family and schoolmates accepted his identity
  • Leaving the LDS Church along with his family
  • His beliefs now and his vision for the future

We are grateful to Alex for sharing his unique story and for shining a light on the transgender experience within the Mormon context!
