Jerry Argetsinger never felt a twinge of tension between being gay and being Mormon. Last week, he unveiled “Latter-Gay Saints: An Anthology of Gay Mormon Fiction,” which he edited with Jeff Laver of Salt Lake City and Johnny Townsend of Seattle.

The book features 25 short stories and four plays, each work exploring how it felt to be gay in families, or at church, or on missions.

Growing acceptance of LGBT people in the Mormon Church was one of GLAAD's top religious advances in 2012.
