Description

The Mormon Church has made its first-ever donation to the Utah Pride Center, a Salt Lake City organization that works with poor and homeless gay young people, in what center officials said on Thursday was a significant moment in the Church's relationship with the gay community. Relations between the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the gay community were strained by Mormon support for California's Proposition 8, a 2008 ballot initiative that stripped same-sex couples there of the right to marry until it was ruled unconstitutional in 2010. The Utah Pride Center describes itself as a nonprofit community organization serving the gay, bisexual and transsexual community in the Salt Lake City metropolitan area. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/oifm_THT1w8/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com
