The Rainbow Mormon Podcast has come out of my experience of a gay man growing up in the LDS Church and my work as a counselor working with hundreds of gay LDS clients and seeing the difficulties that these people face in trying to be honest with who they are while trying to live a belief system, that is very important to them, but conflicts with who they feel they are. The hope with this podcast is to hopefully bring about deeper understanding about the experience of gay members of the Church, and past members of the church. It is also the hope to provide resources in being more loving and compassionate to these people.
My Name is Danny Caldwell, I am the host of Rainbow Mormon Podcast but I am also a Mental Health Counselor in Orem, Utah. I specialize in working with those struggling with a conflict between faith and sexuality and those going through faith crises and faith transitions. I am a former member of the LDS Church but I respect the belief systems of all those I work with even if I do not share those same beliefs. I am the father of 3 amazing boys and live happily in Utah with my partner Ty. I enjoy the outdoors and love most outdoor recreation. I love seeing musical theatre, and play the bagpipes and a little guitar.
