The Psychological Impact of LDS Church Involvement Among LGBTQ+ Individuals

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

LGBTQ+ individuals face unique challenges, however, there are additional challenges faced by those who were raised in the LDS church. This research aims to understand the diversity of LGBTQ+ individuals' feelings and experiences about church involvement, and to identify key factors that make individuals feel marginalized and stigmatized by their church experiences. The team wants to be able to offer meaningful guidance to LGBTQ+ Mormons and their families about how to promote long-term thriving.
