Beyond Savannah

In June, 12-year-old Savannah bore her testimony in her ward., but when she said that she knew God loves her and made her gay, the microphone was shut off and she was told to sit down. This incident, later witnessed over the Internet by millions, is symptomatic of a larger problem within the Mormon church of silencing LGBTQ voices. A panel of LGBTQ Mormons will relate stories of the many ways they have been silenced within Mormonism and what allies can do to amplify and lift up their voices.
