Peggy Fletcher Stack of the Salt Lake Tribune reports in her article BYU Grads Found Love in Paris and New Faith Later on how Patty Willis and Mary Lou Prince, two lesbian Mormons, fell madly, deeply for each other in the City of Love – Paris – and how they are now building interfaith connections within the heartland of Mormonism.   “I spent my first 30 years in Mormonism and my second 30 years outside of it,” Prince says. “Now I want to build bridges. More than half of our singers used to be Mormon. It’s our tribe.”  The article shares their love story and how they are ministering through faith and music, including leading an interfaith choir that will sing a cantata written by Mary Lou at the LDS Assembly Hall on Temple Square on November 7, 2014.  The story has been covered by various news outlets nationwide.

Prince’s brother, Greg Prince, is on the Affirmation Board of Directors and is referenced in the article as wondering if his sister had come out as lesbian in today’s world, whether she would have had to choose between her piety and her partner.  An excellent article about a beautiful couple.
