ALL is a community of local Arizona members of the LDS Church, including LGBT/SSA* Mormons, their families, and those who desire to better understand and love them.
Our hope is to build and strengthen a community of Latter-day saints where LGBT/SSA Mormons feel loved and supported through what can be a challenging experience-—being gay and being Mormon. We want our LGBT/SSA brothers and sisters in the Church to know that there are people in our Church who welcome them into their hearts and congregations. We also want members of the Church to have an opportunity to get to know and understand LGBT/SSA Mormons and meet others who have family or friends that are LGBT/SSA.
As stated on the Church’s official website, “Few topics are as emotionally charged or require more sensitivity than same-sex attraction. This complex matter touches on the things we care about most: our basic humanity, our relationship to family, our identity and potential as children of God, how we treat each other, and what it means to be disciples of Christ.”
*LGBT = Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender SSA = Same-Sex Attracted
