Online Groups

As can easily be imagined, LGBTQIA+ current and former Latter-day Saints and their families and friends have found community with one another online in a number of different groups. The availability of these online groups allows for members of the LGBTQIA+ Latter-day Saint, or Mormon, community to find connection with others who understand the realities of being at the intersection of sexual orientation, gender identity, spirituality, and relationship with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. These connections are so valuable, especially in situations where individuals may not know other members of this community locally.
