Collecting nominations for X-Mormon of the Year 2011!!!

Which X-Mormon had the biggest impact in 2011?? Remember that — as always — the “X” is a variable that can stand for any type of non-traditional Mormon (eg. liberal-Mormon, New Order Mormon, etc.) — it’s not just for “ex” or former Mormons!!

Here are some choices to start with:

Your ideas?

p.s. I’m really sorry about the scheduling confusion, not even getting to the nominations until late February!! But I hope you all can remember 2011 well enough to join in this award. 🙂

    Although he is an active member, I’m going to nominate Bishop Kevin Kloosterman. He might be an active Mormon bishop, but he is nothing typical or traditional.

    Hands Down John Dehlin. I would also nominate John Larsen.

    I nominate Brent Beal (Mr. Cheap Seats) for his insightful and well-written post, “Half a Church”

    Heather Armstrong – dooce
    Dustin Lance Black – J. Edgar (He won the Oscar for the screenplay for “Milk”)

    I think the guys who wrote/directed “yo gabba gabba” (a kids’ show) were mormon/former mormon, but I can’t confirm that.

    Can’t think of other liberal, former or new order mormons who were nationally/internationally famous in 2011 off the top of my head.
