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

I Made Out with My Best Man the Night Before My Wedding

The night before my wedding, Elias and I shared a bed as we had done many times before. But this particular night a cruel sadness hung over us. A sense of finality to it all. We both knew everything would change after this night. We knew there wouldn't be any more nights of cuddles and waking up beside each other; we knew this was the peak of our physical relationship.

When Will I Escape This Valley of Apathy?

Whatever the reason, this is where I find myself: apathetic toward the Church, God, and disciplines like reading Scripture and prayer. I'm not angry at the Church -- just apathetic. And in that apathy I feel ordinarily strong convictions weaken.

YOBcast Episode 070: Attraction

What even is attraction? Is it only physical, sexual, and romantic? Or is it something more? Something that can be platonic yet intimate, something more nuanced and layered? Join Tom, Ryan, and Jacob for a discussion on attraction: the varying types of attraction, the difference between physical and sexual attraction, and whether it’s okay to experience attraction – even romantic – for your friends.

Our Redesigned Site! Featuring Our Three Bedrocks

Huge thanks to Wesley Ayers for all his hard work on the new design!
