LGBT Mormons and their allies gathering at the Circling The Wagons Conference witnessed the premier of this video by Kendall Knox -- the same Kendall Knox who last month produced an It Gets Better video featuring gay Mormons at Brigham Young University. This vid, too, is part of the It Gets Better series. It, too, features Mormons. Only these are straightfolk -- het Mormons who maybe once disliked or feared the LGBT community, but were turned around after a friend or family member came out. They're still devoutly religious, and they express their love of the LGBT community in explicitly Mormon terms. It's an odd thing to see. It's also very moving.


This video was premiered at the Mormon Stories Conference this past weekend.
