All across the United States, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people are having important conversations about the role of faith in their lives. Many LGBTQ Mormons remain closeted and are wondering if and how they might be open about who they are in Mormon communal life, including in wards and stakes.
This guide is aimed at LGBTQ Mormons who are on the journey toward living fully in their sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and in their faith and its traditions. These pages will offer general, overarching insights and suggestions that draw on a wide variety of Mormon voices. The hope is always to spark new ideas, new dialogue and new courage.
