“To outsiders, my mom and I should have been enemies. Our house should have been divided – North vs South, red vs blue, conservative vs progressive, or however you want to put it. Instead, my mom and I fuelled each other.

He grew up in a conservative Mormon household outside San Antonio, Texas. This is his story.
