Watch: Documentary to air about gay Mormon men who married women

Nick Duffy December 20, 2014


A documentary is to be released about gay Mormon men who have married women to try and live as heterosexuals.

The TLC series ‘My Husband’s Not Gay’ will air early next month, and follows four men living in Salt Lake City, Utah.

One of the men admits: “I’m attracted to my wife for sure… and I’m definitely attracted to men too”.

Another adds: “With our faith in God we believe we believe we can overcome anything.”

A wife of one of the men adds: “I get a little defensive when somebody calls my husband gay.”

TheWrap reports: “The show follows married Utah Mormon men who are attracted to the same sex despite being married to women

“The show focuses on three married couples: Jeff and Tanya, Pret and Megan, and Curtis and Tera. Joining the cast is 35-year-old Tom, the bachelor of the group who enjoys fishing and baseball and served as a missionary in Long Beach.

“All cast members are devout Mormons belonging to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The special will follow the cast as they navigate life while explaining to outsiders their unique marriages.”

The Mormon church recently protested after a local gay bar held a ‘Dress like a Mormon’ party before their annual convention.

However club manager Megan Risbon shot back: “We get a lot of out-of-towners, people just started showing up in their suits, wearing their former missionary name-badges and we decided to capitalize on it.”
