“…He inviteth them all to come unto him
and partake of his goodness;
and he denieth none that come unto him,
black and white, bond and free, male and female…
and all are alike unto God.” 2 Ne 26:33
We invite all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Mormons, and those who experience same-sex attraction, to gather together in a spirit of fellowship and understanding with loved ones, family, and fellow members of the LDS Church for a conversation on the experience of LGBT/SSA Mormons.
Keynote speakers include: Mitch Mayne, an openly-gay Latter-day Saint who serves as executive secretary in his ward in San Francisco and is a nationally known commentator and blogger on LDS-LGBT issues and Robert Rees, PhD, who has served as a bishop and as a member of the Baltic States Mission Presidency and who currently teaches Mormon Studies at GTU Berkeley.
The program will also include a Panel Discussion with LGBT/SSA Mormons from Arizona, inspiring Music, and additional opportunities for Sharing.
Light lunch will be served.
This conference is hosted by local members of the LDS Church.
Our hope is to build a community of Latter-day saints where LGBT/SSA Mormons feel loved and supported. Similar to the many conferences being held across the country, this will be the first event of its kind in Arizona and will hopefully lead to more understanding, friendships, and conversation.
*LGBT = Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, SSA = same-sex attracted or attraction
