The purpose of this blog is to help educate the general LDS population, particularly those at BYU, about same-gender attraction and the struggles faced by faithful members of the church who identify as gay or lesbian. We hope we can encourage people who don't experience these struggles to support our brothers and sisters who do -- both those in the church and those not of our faith. We can all start by doing little things: not making homophobic or other derogatory remarks and influencing others to do the same. We can also promote discussions about sexual orientation in the LDS church, in order to destigmatize same-gender attraction and provide resources and support to people in need.
Please read through some of the links posted on the right sidebar. Thank you for taking the time to visit.
Wanda Sykes said it best, "Knock it off!" It may seem harmless, but we never know who it might hurt. Join thousands of others at www.thinkb4youspeak.com by pledging to quit using the phrase "that's so gay"and eliminating it from your vocabulary.
Check out two more PSA clips here.
Take a few minutes and check out some of these videos. Below is a very powerful video of a city council member from Texas who shares his own experience growing up gay.
