Family Acceptance      Project

The Family Acceptance Project® is a research, intervention, education and policy initiative that works to prevent health and mental health risks for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) children and youth, including suicide, homelessness and HIV – in the context of their families, cultures and faith communities. We use a research-based, culturally grounded approach to help ethnically, socially and religiously diverse families to support their LGBT children.

Mormons building bridges

In accordance with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Mormons Building Bridges is a community of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints dedicated to conveying love and acceptance to all those who identify as LGBTQI and those who identify as experiencing same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria.

The MBB community asserts that all our sisters and brothers are inherently worthy of love and belonging in our homes, congregations, and communities – no matter where their life path may take them.

The Mormons Building Bridges community is not a movement built around a single leader – instead it is a community for thoughtful dialogue and innovation that is available to all LDS people as they approach the question of how to help LGBTQ/SSA people to thrive. Any Mormon who wants LGBTQI/SSA people to feel that they are loved and belong, is a Mormon building bridges.
