The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as the Mormon church) has historically frowned upon homosexuality… But as attitudes and politics have changed in the country, the church, too, has experienced some reform to its policies.
Latter-gay Saints follows Tina and Todd, two LGBTQ Mormons, as they navigate the ever-changing, but often difficult relationship between their faith and orientation.
