Welcome

Welcome to MoHoMap.com, a new website designed to address the needs of MoHos (gay Mormons).

The main feature of this site is an interactive map created to get us past the hugest fallacy all of us have faced at one point or another: "You are alone."

The truth of the matter is there are thousands of MoHos out there. The mission of this website is to make sure that every LGBT Mormon who encounters this site will know that he/she has brothers and sisters across the country and around the world.

At launch, twenty-five MoHos from Portland to Pittsburgh have volunteered their locations and other information, and we encourage anyone who’d like to enhance this sense of community to follow the directions under the "How to Join" tab. Participants can share as much or as little
information as they’d like.

Though the initial scope of this site is small, we see many possibilities for this site. One might use it to form a network of friends within your region, seek out men and women with similar stances on the issues we face, organize events, and share help not otherwise offered through the sites listed on our "Resources" page.

Everyone is invited to contribute: active or excommunicated, doubtful or decided, Elders Quorum President or agnostic.

Feel free to contact us at Horizon@mohomap.com and GMB@mohomap.com with any questions and/or suggestions.

Sincerely,

Horizon and GMB
