New Spanish Affirmation Website Goes Live!
August 28, 2014
“When I searched the words “gay” and “mormon” on the Internet, I would find lots of results in english: blogs, web pages, comments, videos, etc. One of the first sites I came across was Affirmation, which I started to look at with unbelief and uncertainty. I didn’t understand how there could be a site like as this, least to say a community like this: I couldn’t be gay and mormon at the same time, how could anybody be? As time went by I realized this group led me to the answers I was looking for, but I couldn’t share them for one single problem: the language. I did understand English, but with every post I read, I thought of my gay and lesbian LDS friends who wouldn’t understand. I always wanted to find these resources in my own language and now here they are! Affirmation has been a great help for me, and I believe it will be a big blessing for thousands of people to be able to read this website in spanish.
