Being a part of a strong community of support is critical to the wellbeing of all people. Affirmation provides many opportunities for LGBTQ Mormons, their family members, and their friends to connect with others in the Affirmation community to find understanding, support, and to offer support to others. From staying connected to Affirmation by subscribing to emails, to helping local chapters of Affirmation thrive, you can decide what level of connection is right for you.
Ways to Connect
Subscribe to Emails
Subscribe to emails from Affirmation: Stay informed with the latest news from Affirmation and content from the Affirmation community. You’ll also receive information on Affirmation conferences and ways you can support Affirmation’s mission. You can subscribe here.

Become a Member of Affirmation: Members of Affirmation are committed to providing healing community and resources to LGBT Mormons and former Mormons, their families and friends, and fostering spirituality and dialog within and beyond the LDS community about sexual orientation, gender identity, and faith. Members are the ultimate governing body of Affirmation and are entitled to vote in Affirmation leadership elections and changes to the Affirmation Charter and Bylaws. Affirmation members are also eligible to serve in leadership roles within the organization. Membership is open to all and membership dues are modest. You can become a member of Affirmation here.
Find a Local Chapter: Affirmation is more than an online community of support for LGBTQ Mormons, their family members, and their friends. Local chapters of Affirmation are organized in areas where there is sufficient membership. Many of these chapters meet regularly. Others organize activities on an ad hoc basis.
