Media Coverage of the 2014 Affirmation Conference, “This Is the Place”

September 15, 2014

The 2014 Affirmation Annual Conference was covered by both print and television media in Utah, but also as far away as Sweden. Coverage emphasized continuing growth of Affirmation; increasing participation in the conference by youth, straight family members and Church leaders; and a yearning on the part of LGBTQ/SSA Mormons to find ways to simultaneously affirm their faith and their sexual and gender identities.
