I’d never been involved in political causes and had never been to a political rally in Utah. That changed after 2011 when my son Grayson discovered that he was FtM transgender. I was horrified to discover that it was still legal to discriminate against my child because of his gender identity, or against others because of their sexual orientation.

We regret to announce the passing of Howard B. Anderson (May 24,1928 – January 21, 2014). As president of the Los Angeles Stake, Pres. Anderson sponsored in the mid-1990s the “Third Friday Group” which gathered once a month at the Westwood Ward (behind the Los Angeles Temple).
A diverse group of speakers is scheduled to participate in the conference for LGBT Mormons, their families and friends to be held in Mexico City February 7-9. Speakers will include LGBT Mexican nationals, a Spanish-speaking mother who supports her gay son, Affirmation leaders, and other LGBT Mormons who will travel from the U.S.
