Nathan IvieUtah Republican Mormon Politician Comes Out as Gay

A Mormon Republican county commissioner in Utah has come out as gay in a Facebook video where he chronicles a suicide attempt and other difficulties in coming to terms with his identity.”

“After decades of wrestling with who I really am, I’ve come to understand and accept some things about myself,” Nathan Ivie, a first-term member of the Utah County Commission, says in the video, posted Wednesday. He “felt different” as early as age 9: “My orientation and attractions were not those that were expected of me.” He ended up trying to take his own life at age 22, but now, at 40, he has accepted himself as “a loving person worthy of love who values others and hopes to be valued.”

“I’m as committed today as I have ever been to my faith, family, and freedom,” Ivie says. “But I realized I could not continue to live a lie. It wasn’t fair, it wasn’t right for anyone.”

Utah County, just south of Salt Lake City, is one of the most conservative parts of the state. Its county seat is Provo, home to Brigham Young University, which is affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (the Mormon Church). The church is deeply opposed to same-sex relationships, and its leaders have even said LGBTQ activism comes from Satan.

In a follow-up interview with The Salt Lake Tribune, he said his politics haven’t changed. “The Democratic Party should not have a monopoly on tolerance,” he said. “I hope this illustrates that you can be gay and Republican. You can believe in limited government and personal liberties.”

He declined to say if he would seek a second term on the commission; Utah County is considering restructuring its form of government. “I plan on continuing my public services,” he said. “We’ll see when and how and we’ll go from there.”

He was already known as an LGBTQ ally, having spoken out against the exclusion of LGBTQ-identified organizations from the America’s Freedom Festival parade in Provo last July 4. Festival organizers eventually relented and allowed the groups to participate. He said that by coming out, he hopes to help LGBTQ young people who are struggling. “They need to know they’re valued, they’re loved,” he said.

To the Associated Press, Ivie added that he wants to let young people know “it’s OK to be different, it’s OK to live authentically. You can be gay and a Republican ... you need to trust that people will love you for who you really are.”

He said he was influenced by interacting with gay couples as a photographer and outdoor sportsman. He recently photographed a same-sex couple’s wedding and saw that “the love they shared and the way they looked at each other was the same as any other couple,” he told the AP. “It helped me realize, ‘Maybe I’m not broken.’”

He and his wife of 13 years have separated but remain best friends and will continue to co-parent their two children, he said. His announcement received support from several Utah politicians, gay and straight, liberal and conservative. (Pub. 5/25)

Special Features of GayTies

322 The Purpose of GayTies.com

GayTies.com, which is a not-for-profit website, is run by disabled Americans. Since its creation in 2006, no staff has gotten paid to work on or manage GayTies.com. In the company plan, no one will ever get paid. In fact, the staff still pays a portion of the expenses to host and operate the site. Money is needed to paid the contracted costs such as hosting, advertising, improvements, and repairs. This is why we have a few BONUS features, to help meet this costs. You might think that is really weird or even untrue. Why would anyone do this you ask, if not for pay?

The creators of this website find a great social value in establishing a sort of web-based, gay community outreach newspaper. Like many newspapers, GayTies has an up to the minute news section, a featured story, Personal Ads, a game or comic section (including Fun with Captions and dirty word crossword puzzles as well as a unique photos puzzle THEY designed), and an entertainment section. In addition to those common features, GayTies.com has a live chat room, a Video Library of over 5,000 videos (and growing), a Photo Gallery of 0ver 30,000 male photos (and growing), and some unique features such as daily GAY horoscopes, Lucky Numbers, tons of searchable profiles, and ORIGINAL erotic stories.

AND … here is a biggie, GayTies.com has a real customer support staff that will assist you usually within 12 hours to answer your questions or help you use the website. Wow! That is amazing. All this for free. When they say free, they mean anyone who joins (with a proper email address) has access to 90 percent of the entire website content. They only offer some videos and some photos for a low cost to help pay for the maintenance of the site. GayTies may be free to you, but it is not free to those who run it and manage it and add improvements to it

Why doesn’t GayTies get income from ads and re-directs to other paid sites, like every other gay website that features sexy videos?

It’s very simple. They hate the way those other sites operate. When you go to a site that says “FREE” and you click on something FREE, it takes you to another site that is for pay only. They HATE that, don’t you? GayTies.com accepts no advertising. There are no sneaky re-directs to other sites, no re-directs at all, there are no cookies to misuse and abuse their members, there is no selling or exchanging of members' contact info. No tricks.

A lot of our members are shut-ins or guys who are deep in the closet who need community information and some comfort and support. I know this may sound like bullshit, but some people in the world want to provide a service. In this case, an important service that delivers comforting entertainment, up-to-date news, great videos and photos, and a vehicle to meet other gay and bi men in person or just on the internet in chat.

Who are these charitable guys who created and operate this site?

They chose to remain anonymous because they do not want to over showdown their humanitarian outreach to the gay and bisexual community. But I can tell you that these men have worked for decades as volunteers in the gay community, many years assisting people with AIDS, working on improving relationships with police, One of these men is responsible for establishing and operating an anti-gay violence hotline, and in general, working to secure full right to the LGBT community. I know almost all private adult websites are probably big companies that spam everyone, trick them, plaster their sites with misleading advertising as well as awful and annoying re-directs. Gayties.com has it organizational model centered on establishing a valuable service. A service that is safe and private, run by a few guys who want to give back to the community. It’s a service that is entertaining and informative; a service that is largely free, and hopefully soon, self-sustaining.

GayTies staff wants to thank those many members for their long-term support. If you would also like to help, please buy an upgraded membership, and/or give a donation, or help promote GayTies.com on other website and forums and blogs. We need more members to post links back to GayTies.com on such site as Facebook and Twitter, Reddit and whatever other gay-friendly sites you come across. Thank you all for your support!

Tomorrow will begin another new Kinksville story, don’t miss it. Upgrade today to read the full story sections starting now. Read, view and participant in the many things regular members cannot.
