Watch the whole talk here»

John Dehlin is a practicing Mormon … and an outspoken activist for LGBTQ rights. In this touching talk at TEDxUSU, John shares how a friendship with an openly gay coworker changed his views on homosexuality and led him to a career in psychology.

In his research, John looks at the complex, often-prickly relationship between religion and sexuality. Here, he shares some of his findings — heartbreaking statistics about how negative feelings toward sexuality and attempts to “fix” same-sex attraction inspire suicides and teen homelessness.

Remember last semester when the Texas A&M University Student Senate thought it would be a good idea to opt-out of funding the GLBT Resource Center for “religious” reasons? Well, now the whole student body can breathe a sigh of relief as this brick was laid today, reminding us that our stories are meaningful, and that there are people who care. To whoever donated this brick, thank you.

Dear Mom and Dad,
This is what happiness looks like. Sorry you were so miserable in your own lives that you couldn’t allow me a chance at my own. I went out and found it anyway. I miss you, and will miss you even more this holiday season since you won’t allow me to come back home unless I have a woman on my arm. Oh by the way, we’ll still be using the family recipe for the stuffing, I’m sure it’ll be a hit with our friends.
Happy Holidays, Your son, his boyfriend, and our spoiled cat

I’m actually going to cry this is so cute! 

i’m sorry that his parents didn’t accept him based on who he loved but i’m glad he didn’t give on love because of who didn’t accept it.
