The Conflicting Identities Of Lgbt Mormons

In 2015, Amber Whiteley was a contributing author for a book chapter for the American Psychological Association. Titled Conflicting Identities: Sexual Minority, Transgender, and Gender Nonconforming Individuals Navigating Between Religion and Gender/Sexual Orientation Identity, the chapter discusses various religious identities. Whiteley advocated for Mormons to be included in the chapter. This presentation will discuss the findings from the chapter, and what the implications are for both mental health workers who help the LDS community as well as LDS sexual minorities.
