The 2017 North Star Conference is an invaluable resource for individuals who experience same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria and wish to live a Christ-centered life full of peace and joy. Participate in keynotes and over 30 breakout addresses, and panel discussions featuring leaders, scholars, therapists and entertainers from the Latter-day Saint and North Star communities.

You will hear first-hand accounts of individuals and families as they navigate the complex journey of reconciling faith and gender identity. Family members and church leaders who seek to create an environment of love and understanding will benefit from sessions designed specifically for those providing support to loved ones and those within their stewardship.
