The annual “All Are Alike Unto God” ALL Conference is an opportunity to promote greater love and understanding of LGBT/SSA Mormons by bringing people together to listen, learn, and fellowship with one another. Conference attendees include LGBT/SSA persons, family members, friends, church leaders, and anyone else interested in this topic.
As stated on the LDS Church’s official website, mormonsandgays.org, “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.” The ALL Conference is presented as an opportunity to have a conversation about such matters. It is our hope that it might serve as an avenue for increased love, understanding, awareness and welcoming of LDS LGBT/SSA individuals in Arizona.
The first conference was held in 2013 and was the first of its kind in Arizona. The annual ALL Conference promises to be an inspiring, uplifting, and enlightening event. The conference format typically includes speakers, a Q&A session with a panel of LGBT/SSA Mormons offering their personal stories and experiences, uplifting music, and testimony/story sharing. All individuals, regardless of their current relationship with the LDS Church, are welcome and invited to participate. We hope you will plan to attend the next conference!
