Event description

Description

“‘A happy gay Mormon.’ That’s the shorthand I often use to describe myself. Some of my gay friends—as well as some of my LDS friends—are a little surprised that I think it’s possible to be a gay Mormon.”

After coming out as gay, leaving the Church, and living with a partner for 19 years, Tom Christofferson ultimately decided to return and be re-baptized into the LDS church with the strong support of family, friends and great ward and stake leaders.

Join with Tom Christofferson- author of the new book That We May Be One and self-proclaimed ‘Happy Gay Mormon' - as he discusses his journey back to the Church along with his former Stake President, Dave Checketts, and his former Bishop, Bruce Larson. In a panel discussion moderated by Sheri Dew, the three men will each explain their experiences and perspectives on this challenging issue. Audience members will also get the chance to ask their own questions in a Q&A session during the event.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and admission will be first-come-first served. NOTE: Registering via Eventbrite does NOT guarantee you a seat for this event. No reserving of seats will be permitted.
