In this episode of Mormon Stories, we interview Savannah and her mother, Heather.
In this episode of Mormon Stories we interview Savannah and her mother, Heather. Savannah recently generated international media attention when she came out as gay to her Mormon ward (congregation) in Eagle Mountain, Utah during fast and testimony meeting (May 7, 2017). Towards the end of her testimony, a presiding priesthood authority cut off her microphone and told her to sit down. A friend recorded the video of her live testimony.
In this episode John interviews both Savannah and Heather in order to provide the context for Savannah's testimony that day. Questions answered in this episode include:
*What was Savannah's relationship with the Mormon church prior to her testimony?
Special thanks to Heather and Savannah for visiting with the Mormon Stories crew and sharing her beautiful story!
