Archuleta, 30, narrates how he identified himself as bisexual and asexual in a period of time. He writes coming out publicly was an uncomfortable step for him, but he had to do it to bring awareness. David states how the concept can be unfathomable for many, and hence, an open debate around it is necessary.
He further writes, "To listen more to the wrestle between being LGBTQIA+ and a person of faith. I don’t think it should come down to feeling you have to accept one or the other. You can be part of the LGBTQIA+ community and still believe in God and His gospel plan."
