Ex-NFL QB Steve Young to speak at Mormon conference on LGBT acceptance (AP)

The Youngs said in a statement they are happy to be a part of the conference and “lend their voices to the healing work of making our families, our society and our church more welcoming places for our LGBT brothers and sisters.” ...

Steve Young is a direct descendent of Brigham Young, so he is likely to carry some weight in the LDS community. I'm happy to see Young's advocacy on behalf of LGBT people. I always admired him as a football player and he seems like a class act. I just never knew where he would stand as a member of the LDS Church. ~ Lori

Steve was a great quarterback. I'm sure his involvement will carry some weight. The Mormon church isn't exactly friendly toward TGLB people.Suicide among TGLB Mormons is high.
