VIDEO: 12-Year-Old Mormon Girl Comes Out to Her Church Community

| June 17, 2017

“I believe that God wants us to treat each other with kindness, even if people are different — especially if they are different.”

Huffpost Queer Voices’ James Michael Nichols shared the story of 12-year-old Savannah, who came out to her entire Mormon church community recently. Just before she finished her statement, a church official asked her to sit down, but her full testimony has been posted on YouTube.

Prior to being interrupted, Huffpost reports, Savannah offered her powerful and heartwarming personal account about her relationship with her sexuality.

“God loves me just this way, because I believe that he loves all his creations… I do believe he made me this way on purpose,” she says in the video. “No part of me is a mistake. I do not choose to be this way, and it is not a fad. I cannot make someone else gay and being around me won’t make anyone else this way. I believe that God wants us to treat each other with kindness, even if people are different.”
