Ricks Family Part III: Lauren

With remarkable wisdom and courage, Lauren gives us a raw and rare glimpse of what it's like for an LDS adolescent to realize that he or she is gay. It is a privilege to listen to her describe how she survived a suicide attempt and was able to rebuild not only her life, but her relationship with her parents. We encourage both parents of LGBTQ children and members of the LGBTQ community to listen to Lauren’s advice about how to maintain both faith and supportive relationships.
