David Archuleta - I FINALLY Kissed a Guy at age 30

“It felt effortless. I was like, ‘Oh, so this is what it feels like to like someone.’”

Archuleta says that after coming out, he tried to engage with Mormon leaders about the church’s attitude toward LGBTQ people. However, it proved fruitless, leading him to WALK AWAY

“For my own mental health, I can’t keep putting myself in a place where it’s so conflicting where they say, ‘We love you so much, but at the same time, you must change who you are. Oh, you can’t? Then we’re going to ignore this problem’.”

Well good for him. I'm sure he's having a blast doing more than just kissing. At least at thirty he still looks half his age. I predict he'll be in a relationship soon if not already. At least he's escaped the hell he was in.

There's nothing to doubt about him. David is so clearly what he is. Confused and Conflicted. Mormon. Not them fake porn boys. I would have guessed Archuleta to be 35 years old. He doesn't look so old.....but he looks very backwoods and more mentally ill the more gay he gets. His hair and eyes and glossy lips. He looks like a 14 year old gay boy trying on lewks from 2010. He's going through it. Poor guy.

I never had that phase. Some of us are born aggressive sexy men. David's market value is in the basement before he even gets started. A tiny bottom who is hesitant to do more than kiss at 30 years old? He's a gay disaster. I totally believe him. Some here don't know much about Mormons. Or true fear of the Lord.

David may be concerned about his career - but he sings in mall parking lots. At least he ain't sucking dick back there. He looks pretty fucked up to be honest.

Kid had a more than ok voice. But he creeps people out. We can see his struggles and he is so uncomfortable being himself.

R29 Absolutely agree with everything you said bar your first five words - I think its not that he's stupid, but that he's been sheltered and rendered ignorant of the world by his Mormon upbringing, and he has been figuring everything out not just on his own as you said, but doing so in public.

R66 in this day and age I still know personally of at least a few women who have married gay/bi guys, not even from super conservative backgrounds or communities, just to avoid the stigma of being seen as and treated as an old maid/christmas cake, connotation being "pathetically lonely and unfuckable cat lady old before time".

People who say it is easy to be a single adult woman today are overestimating the progress society has made in allowing women freedom--yes, it's possible and viable now as a lifestyle choice, but you still get treated with suspicion and hostility and less respect if as a grown woman you are not or have not been married to a man at some stage (even if only for a few years, and/or to a closet case).

Studies actually show that for a woman to stay single is the healthy smart option, but like a lot of healthy smart options is looked down on.

Has he ever commented on what his family said when he came out? We all know the homophobic mormon church is not accepting, so their response to him coming out is not surprising. I wonder what his stage dad said. According to DL gossip for the past decade (if true) his dad encouraged him to marry a woman, he was apparently a stage dad, always about making David famous, and that meant him being straight and appealing to women. Was any of that true? What does he think now?

by Anonymousreply 152November 22, 2022 3:54 PM

I only follow this through DL. I think someone said his father was actually more chill than his mother, which would sort of make sense in light of the father's massage parlor adventures.

R153 Thanks. I still think it's weird how he never talks about how his family reacted to him coming out.

by Anonymousreply 155November 22, 2022 4:08 PM

[R152] It was all true. David did one of his best interviews on Jennette Mccurdy's podcast Empty Inside back during lockdown, but her publisher had her delete the whole podcast so all I have is memories of what he said. Basically, his dad was emotionally abusive, demanding, controlling and wanted to call all the shots for him and his career. David felt trapped, went on his mission to get away from his dad, but dad wouldn't leave him alone. He started sending him massive amounts of emails insulting him and calling him worthless. David printed them out, went to his bishop who advised him to cut all contact because he was the victim of abuse.

When he came back from the mission, David took ownership over his life and cut his dad off on everything. The rest is all stuff I know from being nosy, but he tried to reconnect with his dad around the same time he came out to his family and started dating girls as a cover up. It didn't work out, and he started doing interviews about controlling, toxic, manipulative people and how he had to gain independence. His song Upset With Me from his 2017 album is clearly about his dad. That whole Postcards in the Sky album had some revealing lyrics about fame and how people treat you like a puppet but throw you away when you stand up for yourself. I'd love to hear another album like that from him now that he's moving away from Mormonism and openly gay.

As for his mom, she was just at his latest concert hugging him on stage and singing and dancing with him. He's got a lesbian cousin he's close to from her side, and his mom's side of the family in general seems supportive. Dad's side, not so much. David's brother (who used to call his fans faggots back in the day on Twitter) allegedly stabbed someone and was a teenage drug dealer according to some ex-girlfriend of his. Toxic family unit for sure.

TL;DR: Dad rumors were true, David doesn't talk to him anymore, his mom seems to love him but who knows what she thinks of him being gay. His younger sister Amber is closest to him and left the church because of how they treated him. His middle sister Jazzy follows some ex-Mormon accounts and likes all of David's posts about LGBT inclusion. Not certain of what his older sister thinks, but she ran an account on several fan message boards back in the day exposing her brother's personal Myspace photos.

He initially came out to his parents as gay. When he came out publicly, he claimed to be bisexual. And yet, in more recent interviews, he makes it clear that he isn't sexually attracted to women, which is why he never married any of the women to whom he was supposedly engaged. So I guess he avoids the issue now by calling himself queer. Same old story. No one wants to be labeled as gay.

by Anonymousreply 161November 23, 2022 3:06 AM

[R159] He's had a few too many crash courses in LGBT history from Kevin McHale's faux woke ass. He calls himself gay in the GMA/Nightline interview, then follows up with queer, so it appears he knows he's strictly into men but still struggles with the identity.

Still a form of internalized homophobia from the church, he's got to work on that. Apparently his mom and all of his sisters left the church with him, so he has them to back him up.

I have a Mormon friend and the amount of indoctrination that Mormons do cannot be understated. It is extremely cultish just like Jehovah's Witnesses. They really, really believe their doctrine. Catholics and Evangelicals are not really religious to the extent of JW and LDS. Those two are more like Muslims in an Islamic theocracy then Catholic/Orthodox and Protestants.

Here's why. Mormons and JW revolve their whole lives and identity around their religion. Catholics are just required to do confirmation and go to a weekly mass and many don't even do that. Evangelicals may do Sunday service, Bible study and youth groups but most just do it for the social community and live very different lives outside. Mormons and JW are initiated into rites and told not to question anything. JW even discourage higher education and Mormons are strict on secular media. Mormons have a deep hierarchy similar to Catholics where their elders have absolute authority over the doctrine and can't be challenged. In the case of Mormons, they are heavily socialized only with each other and taught to see themselves as superior to non-Mormons. They may with with and have non-Mormon friends but they don't see them at all as equals. And often will proselytize to them. Mormons do tons of rituals and teenage boys are put on two years of mission service.

Also Mormons have to fully tithe regardless of their struggles. The LDS church provides a lot of services to struggling Mormons which keeps them codependent. Utah and parts of Idaho are heavily controlled by LDS and both are Republican states that oppose welfare. Part of this is to retain theocracy and hierarchy. So poor Mormons are dependent on their church for their livelihood. Even Bible Belt Christians can get assistance from government and don't have to rely on their church. Mormons are taught to be against federal government and they have a strong persecution complex.

Mormon women are also heavily pushed to marriage and having children to ensure they're go to heaven. So young Mormons get married and have kids before they're old enough to have a stable income. This again keeps dependent on the LDS for support. Mormons end up too scared to leave because they'll get shunned and possibly excommunicated. This will leave many vulnerable to poverty.

Mormons are very materialistic and embrace the prosperity gospel. I believe part of their doctrine is all believers will become gods of their own planets and enjoy luxury. So Mormons are put under intense pressure to look wealthy, cleancut and smile and seem happy. They involve music and claim musical gifts are a sign of godliness, which is why so many Mormons are singers. It's an extremely superficial culture and it's a big reason also why Mormon women are in the cosmetics and fashion media sphere.

And for gay Mormons like Archie, they are told they can still practice but must abstain from sexual acts. They are not treated at all like equals and will face tons of pressure to marry and have kids. Since many Mormons are emotionally codependent on the LDS church for the reasons I listed. That's why it's so hard for Archie to leave. It's his whole identity. Many ex-Mormons still affiliate with Mormons because of their strong cultural connection.

Most Evangelicals are not this extreme even if they align with Republican, most of their kids still grow up agnostic or atheist especially once they leave home. Only fringe cults like the Duggars are on this level of psychological mind games and gaslighting and they use the same tactics of instilling learned codependency into their kids.

There is a significant difference between Mormons and JWs tho, R259, and that is that Mormons do not completely separate themselves from the outside world. They very effectively practice their cult-like thinking while still going to college (not just BYU), celebrating the holidays (including Halloween), having normal careers, and so forth. But every aspect of their lives is still effectively controlled and yes, if they step away, they will lose a hell of a lot. They are generally not shunned to the extent of JWs, but since so many of their activities revolve around religion, they will have no social life and have to rebuild. I don't think the concern over poverty is as big with ex-Mormons compared to JWs either, unless of course we're talking gay teens or whatever. Mormons can find real work. JWs can find McDonald's.

Dated an ex-Mormon for two years, had a 26-year relationship with an ex-Witness, and am now married to an ex-Roman Catholic. I know this sounds like an intro to a bad joke (a Mormon, a Jehovah's Witness, and a Catholic walk into a bar and...). All of them severely fucked up by their respective cults. The severe indoctrination followed by cultural rejection is what did it. (I grew up in a WASPY, agnostic, ultraliberal family, toxic in other ways). The minutia of the everyday rules and doctrines seemed to be the most difficult for them to let go of -- seems almost like an addiction -- while cultural and family exclusion was almost expected when they came out, so that wasn't a big shocker for them, but it was a brave decision. It was easier for the ex-Catholic ("recovering Catholic") because there are so many of them. My brilliant, crazy LDS guy, who saw the absurdity of that religion, ended up back in Utah, because being Mormon was his cultural identity and he felt the need to live in that, despite his utter disdain for the religion itself. Note that he had a college education and intellect. Don't think that Archie gets out of this easily. Although he's sincere, kind hearted, and even articulate at times, I don't think he's developed the critical thinking skills that would empower him to reject all of that doctrine that he spent his whole life studying. May he find peace, happiness, cock, and love soon.

The lack of critical thinking is the biggest factor in relapsing. I think that's why ex-Mormons and ex-Evangelical fundamentalists end up coming back. Why the Amish kids who do Rumsprimga usually end up coming back. They are taught to be fearful of the outside world and depending how deeply indoctrinated and socialized they are, they will end up having intense anxiety and paranoia and feeling like an outsider in secular society. Fundamentalist religions are like drugs. You see former addicts becoming religious freaks and engaging with other religious freaks.

I've heard from some pretty reliable sources that Archuleta's been arranging to move back to LA full time, so hopefully he's removing himself as far out of that sheltered Mormon bubble as he can. His boyfriend locked down his social media, so hopefully that means he's not into exposing Archie's private business for 5 seconds of fame.

As for R262, you speak the truth: the church and the comfort you feel in the familiarity of their world is what causes many to stay. Abuse victims/domestic violence victims deal with similar shit. When you're taught one thing and thrust into a world that's the polar opposite of your own, it's fucking scary without support. Just look at what's going on with Joshua Bassett and his family's cult.

Donny Osmond is apparently straight. Mormon men have the tendency to look very gay but that's because they are trained from infancy to make a big phony smile that looks like they're smelling cookies. Smiling is a big part of increasing converts for their MLM cult.

R275 This will sound as believable as "my friend on a bike", but I have a source who correctly called David being at the NYE rave before he posted it and followed the alleged boyfriend before he privated all of his socials. D's family and childhood friends are mutual followers of each other. He's apparently been wearing this man's clothes and flying out almost weekly to see him.

Even if it is some stalker lunacy, I'll take their word over the Twitter trolls that claim Charlie Puth is David's ex and that he's turned into West Hollywood's golden hole for lines any day.

In other news, David's started an Instagram subscribers only aka watered down OnlyFans. He did a poll asking what people wanted to see from him each week and 70% voted personal life. Almost no one voted for singing.

He's the third for OF queen John Ramos and his fiance. My hag saw them grinding and kissing at Play in Nashville a couple weeks back.

I'm guessing he's done with the PR bottom bitch from LA. Moving quick after his first taste of dick. I approve.

by Anonymousreply 289February 23, 2023 10:44 AM

He did a subscribers only live on Instagram yesterday. Highlights include:

-He confirms he cusses and has since before leaving the cult. Would not cuss on camera. -He officially left the Mormon church, not just "a step back" -Cut off remaining Mormon friends for keeping tabs on his behavior outside the church -He no longer identifies as bisexual because he doesn't know if he's attracted to women at all (no shit) -Will be a guest star in some capacity on this season of American Idol -No new tour planned, he's over it -May write another memoir

If the Instagram subscription doesn't pan out, I suspect he'll be getting off on camera to pay the bills. His Archie Music LLC was shut down last year, so he has nowhere to distribute his music. No business sense whatsoever, but he's sexy.

I hope not. I think it's sad that for some gay people, accepting their orientation goes hand in hand with the drugs and sex scene.

R297 Given that he had a panic attack and spiraled when he thought about needing to fuck his fiancee on their wedding day which led to him breaking off 3 engagements, I doubt he ever thought he was bisexual. He has trauma around the word gay due to the cult, but he needs to deal with that in therapy and not in labeling himself other things to avoid it.

There was a lot of abuse in his family. I’ve heard his dad was physically violent with him, though I don’t know to what extent. Partnered with his religious background, it’s not at all surprising that he has so many issues with accepting himself.
