Convention center hosts conference on LDS same-sex attraction

Among the many surprises coming out of the so-called "Mormon moment" was the attention on and interest in homosexual members of the LDS Church. Now, a conference scheduled for Saturday will attempt to navigate that difficult and sometimes contentious topic.

The conference, called "Same-sex Attraction: Reconciling Faith and Feelings," will take place Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Provo. According to promotional materials, the event will bring "together a number of people who have experienced same-sex attraction, including several persons who now have successful opposite-sex marriages."
