Welcome, friend.

We're glad you found us. Settle in as we tell you a story — our story.

Our stories of faith, homosexuality, and masculinity take the form of blogs, podcasts, and videos. Flip a page and journey with us however and wherever your heart leads.

As you navigate around our community, we hope you feel at home with us. Feel free to introduce yourself with a comment or an email. We'd love to hear from you.

Who knows? Perhaps our story will soon intersect your own.

Amid your page-turnings on our site, if you hear nothing else, please hear this: you are not alone. Even the sparrow finds a home.

Onward,

Your Other Brothers

The Church vs. the LGBTQ+ Community: A More Compelling Narrative?

I feel my Christian community lacking and also the LGBTQ+ community lacking. What is one supposed to do?

YOBcast Episode 062: “Side A” Friends

"Side A" people follow Jesus with an affirming position on same-sex sexual relationships. As Jesus-followers from a "Side B" (traditional) position on marriage and sexuality, is it difficult or effortless to forge friendships with folks who are Side A? Join Tom, Dean, and Matt for a discussion on their experiences with Side A friendships: both with friends who started out Side A and also with friends who started out Side B – only for them to change to Side A. Can Side B-turned-A friendships survive? How do we build healthy Side A friendships?

Our Redesigned Site! Featuring Our Three Bedrocks

After a long, cold, manly void of a winter, MANLY MONTHLY returns! I catch us up on the last couple months of blogs and podcasts, and I talk about the process of our site redesign – including the three bedrocks of Your Other Brothers embedded into our new logo.
