Supporting The LGBTQ+ Community: Part 2

“Empathy is about standing in someone else’s shoes, feeling with his or her heart, seeing with his or her eyes. Not only is empathy hard to outsource and automate, but it makes the world a better place.”

Daniel H. Pink

Every member of the LGBTQ+ community has a story and, to fully understand what another person is going though, we must be willing to first hear their side of the story.

Here are three brave souls who are willing to give us a glimpse into what it’s like to be an LGBTQ+ within a Latter-Day community.

We hope that by sharing their stories, we can all be a little more understanding, a little more patient, a little more compassionate, and a whole lot more loving towards, not only the LGBTQ+ among us, but towards everyone we come in contact with. 

Because everyone is fighting their own battles.
