That We May Be One: A Gay Mormon’s Perspective on Faith and Family
SALT LAKE CITY — Nearly 40 years ago, Tom Christofferson told his family he was gay. The initial reactions from his parents and brothers varied but their love for him never changed.
This KSL television special — “That We May Be One: A Gay Mormon’s Perspective on Faith and Family” — shares the story of Christofferson’s spiritual journey.
“I hope that when people hear the story of our family, they understand that the happy ending is not that I came back to church — although I’m grateful for that, obviously. The happy ending is that our family remained united in love throughout this journey,” he said.
The program features an interview with Christofferson and his brothers, along with ward and stake leaders in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who helped fellowship him back into the LDS faith after nearly two decades.
