SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – The University of Utah Press has announced that they will publish a book regarding gay rights and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The book is titled “Gay Rights and the Mormon Church: Intended Actions, Unintended Consequences” by Gregory Prince.

The book, which will be available nationwide in April, draws from more than 50,000 pages of public records, private documents, and interview transcripts to explore the Church’s attitudes towards homosexuality, including their involvement the traditional marriage debate. 

“Perhaps Prince’s greatest contribution in this book is the way he delves into the real and tragic connection between homosexuality and suicide, illuminating through the heartbroken experiences of homosexual youth the need for compassionate and caring responses and for messages that say to these young people that God does not hate them and neither does their religion,” Press Director GlendaCotter said.

Prince will speak about his work on Monday, March 25, at 7 p.m. The event, co-sponsored by the University of Utah Press and Equality Utah, will be held at the Gould Auditorium at the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah.
