How Straight Mormons Respond to Their LGBT Loved Ones

December 14, 2014

At the 2014 Affirmation International Conference, Bryce Cook, proud father of two gay sons, shares insights gathered from a survey he conducted of over 1,500 straight Mormons asking how they felt or what they thought about their LGBT family members and friends.

“What’s the key takeaway from this survey? What the final conclusion? You can be a faithful member of the church and still say you’re a gay rights advocate.” – Bryce Cook
