The Expression of Spirituality of the Rising Gay Generation For thirty years, Affirmation: Gay and Lesbian Mormons has been the leading advocacy organization for gay Latter-day Saints. Affirmation leaders plan to meet with officials of LDS Family Services to discuss matters of concern to gays and lesbians in the Church. We believe this to be the first meeting of its kind to be held at the direction of the First Presidency. Affirmation leaders in this session will discuss the following questions: What are the puzzles, trials, and hopes associated with being young, gay, and Mormon? How does Affirmation help gay LDS men and women in their journey? How has the experience of being gay and Mormon evolved over the last thirty years? Is the Church re-defining its stance on homosexuality? Is there hope for a productive dialogue between Church leaders and Affirmation?
