We are sad to report that Harlan Ray White, MD, widely known as Moonstorm Erosong, died Friday, November 19, 2021 at University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, of complications of liver disease. He was 71.
Storm was one of the founders and a longtime board member and past president of UUPA. He was also a former member of the Board of the Center for Sex Positive Culture.
Storm got his BA in English at Indiana University and his MA in English at the University of Iowa. Changing course, he then completed Medical School at the University of Illinois and became a psychiatrist. He practiced in Hawaii and then in Seattle until his retirement. While in Hawaii he got a Master’s in Public Health from the University of Hawaii.
Storm was born in 1950 in Louisville, Kentucky, to Harlan Scott White and Rosann Rentschler Van Valer White. He grew up outside Indianapolis, Indiana, and in the Chicago suburbs. He has one older sister, Valerie White, who wrote this tribute, and who is also a founder and long-time board member of UUPA. Storm and Valerie’s mother was one of the people who answered Alfred Kinsey’s questionnaire, and his aunt, her sister, is acknowledged as a research assistant in Kinsey’s "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male." His parents were founding members of the National Abortion Rights Action League.
Storm attended religious education classes as a child at the Unitarian Church of Hinsdale, Illinois, and identified as UU and pagan the rest of his life.
Who We Are
We are UUs. We sing next to you in Sunday services and in choir
lofts. We serve on church committees and teach religious education. We attend regional
meetings and General Assemblies, where many of us serve as delegates from our congregations.
Our faith is important to us.
We are families. We raise children, cherish pets, and keep in touch with extended family.
We have jobs, pay bills, and try to keep up with household chores. Our family structure may be a little different
than most people expect, but otherwise, we are just like everybody else.
We are associated with the
Unitarian Universalist Association as a
Related Organization of the Association.
UUPA is separate from the UUA and is independently organized and managed.
We are proud to note the UUA officially includes polyamorists in their membership guidelines. See the
UUPA Report on General Assembly 2014
The 2014 General Assembly passed a package of amendments to the UUA Non-discrimination Statement, including insertion of the phrase "family and relationship structures."
