Bryan Wilmoth (R) is the oldest of eight siblings.

They grew up in a strict, religious household. Over the years, all of the siblings have become estranged from their parents.

Bryan, who is gay, was the first to get kicked out.

At StoryCorps, he told his younger brother, Michael (L), what happened.
