Welcome, friend.

We’re glad you're here. 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. Journey with us however and wherever your heart leads.

Just jump right in.

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 to any of our authors. We'd love to hear from you.

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

Just remember: you are not alone. Even the sparrow finds a home.

Onward together,

 

Your Other Brothers

Coming Out and Confessing to My Pastor

He was sitting there waiting for me, like usual. My pastor asked if I was okay, though he knew I wasn't. He could tell I was an emotional wreck, that I needed to get some stuff off my chest. I felt numb, this deep despair inside me, like all my energy had escaped me. I only had enough to meet with him on this particular day.

Why I Love “Stand By Me”

"Stand By Me" makes me pine for what I wish I could have had in my childhood but also makes me grateful for the friendships I have now as an adult. So, where to begin with this movie? Honestly, there's a lot. The movie's focus is the relationships among the four boys. They all come from broken families and bond together to form their own family.

YOBcast Episode 053: Brothers! w/ Jacob & Nate

Jacob's older brother, Nate, joins us for a deep-dive into their relationship: how Jacob came out to his brother, Nate's reaction as a straight guy, their parents' dynamic, and their respective struggles with pornography. It's a cinematic storytelling session full of laughs and tearful takes alike. Beyond their brotherly story, we get to know Nate (including his personality styles and love languages), learn about Nate's friendship with Tom, and partake in a "brotherly bridge" all about capris. Yes, capris — the pant.

Thanksgiving is the Worst! And Also Yearlong.

It's another edition of the Manly Monthly! Our recap of the month that was at Your Other Brothers and a dive into gratitude during what can be a hard holiday season. Also Tom waters his new plants and fights a wasp!
