Allies, LGBT Mormons to Participate in June Pride Events across the Country
By Hugo Salinas
LGBT Mormons, along with LDS allies, family, and friends, will participate in a number of Pride events to be held across the country during the month of June. Many of these groups have already registered for Pride marches, and announcements are already being posted on Facebook.
Last summer, hundreds of straight Mormons marched with LGBT Latter-day Saints in a dozen different events held across U.S. cities and in Santiago de Chile. These LDS marchers received wide media attention and helped dispel the notion that all Mormons are anti-gay or homophobic. The Salt Lake City marchers, in particular, were featured in stories published in dozens of media outlets, including Reuters, CNN, and Salon.com.
