How you can help

This site is still in it's infancy. We have exciting plans to expand this site to make it a powerful and innovative resource for all who want to consider and use the gospel of Jesus Christ to resolve traditional misunderstanding, fear, hostility and oppression surrounding our Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersexed family members, neighbors and fellow citizens.

1. The best way to help is share these teachings of the Savior and other scriptures with your family, friends and others who can benefit from them. (“And now, as the preaching of the word had a great tendency to lead the people to do that which was just—yea, it had had more powerful effect upon the minds of the people than the sword, or anything else, which had happened unto them—therefore Alma thought it was expedient that they should try the virtue of the word of God.” —Alma 31: 5)

2. Promote understanding by writing thoughtful, heartfelt answers on our comment area.

3. Promote awareness by memorializing Gay LDS loved ones you have lost to suicide or HIV/AIDS.

4. As God's Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender or Intersexed children and those who love and support them, simply and truthfully follow the example of the Savior and actively go about doing good, being kind, patient and forgiving while using the God-given gifts, talents, sensitivities we have been given, eventually our opponents will start to see that God-given good in us. Hearts will be softened, minds enlightened through open, honest and kind conversation and love and unity will increase in the world. "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven" (Matt. 5:16; 3 Nephi 12:16).

5. While the core content, the gospel of Jesus Christ is free to all, the creative and technical design and programming to present the content in highly effective ways requires financial resources. Our goal is to produce informational and inspirational videos, print materials and a highly interactive web site to promote understanding, unity and equality and help end suicide, self-destructive attitudes and behaviors, and family and religious divisions. We have been mostly using our credit cards to develop and launch the site, print materials and videos. That does not include a lot of very generous discounts on services and donated resources. Thank you to all who have helped in many different ways!

If you or someone you know values this effort, please consider contributing financially to speed this work along.  If you have other talents, graphics/web design, programming or educational skills, or other abilities, resources, ideas or interests to contribute to the cause, we would love to hear from you. Thanks.

sincerely,
