Chris Davis was a lifelong devout Mormon who checked all the expected boxes of wife, mother, teacher, leader, follower, and believer until 2020 when she left her family and her church to fulfill her own personal destiny as a gay woman and independent thinker. She remains close with her two adult children, one of whom is a believing member of the church and the other who is a transgender man who has also left the church.
Chris’s other works include contributing the essay Five Stories on Why I Don't Belong, about her experience of being queer in the LDS church in an anthology called I Spoke to You with Silence: Essays from Queer Mormons of Marginalized Genders, published in 2022 by the University of Utah Press. And a newly-released anthology called Rivers of Ink: Literary Reflections on the Penobscot, which features her essay called Follow the River Home in which she relates a nostalgic story from her childhood in Bangor, Maine, in 1978.
She lives quite happily in her home state of Maine.
