Queer atheist writer Chris Stedman writes about his experiences in Utah while visiting to speak at “Intersecting Convictions,” an interfaith conference. The conference was held in early March at Utah Valley University, a publicly funded university in Orem, Utah, about one hour south of Salt Lake City. Audience participants and sponsors from both BYU and UVU helped bring the event into being.
