LGBTQ+ Mom Speaks Out Against Possible Church Handbook Changes with Melisa Mons

On a very special episode of Mormonish, Rebecca and Landon sit down with our good friend, Melisa Mons to discuss the potential "November 15th" like General Handbook policy chaanges regarding the transgender community. These changes have been discussed on social media on multiple platforms. Melisa is in a mixed faith marriage and the parent of a transgender child. She is an outspoken advocate for the LGBTQ+ community, and shares her empassioned plea for understanding and acceptance of LGBTQ+ youth in the church by members and leadership. Melisa is a wonderful, caring individual who works tirelessly to support this community and more. We know you'll be as moved as we were by her story.
