    Bronze in People/Portrait

In contemporary times it is peculiar to still witness people being discriminated against because of their sexuality in first world countries. Here in America the new generation of LGBTQ+ Mormons in Utah is changing the course of its historic struggle between their sexual identity and the conflicts with their religious beliefs by publicly acting on their sexuality while some of them still practice their faith. Despite the Church’s strict teachings they are determined in their pursuit of love. This project aims to help normalize the images of LGBTQ+ community in the conservative Utah.
