The LDS Church's policy on gay couples and their children led to mixed reactions from the Mormon faithful and outsiders alike, but the response from members within the Mormon LGBT population has brought suicide to the forefront of the discussion.

On Monday at 12:15 p.m., former Utah Pride Center Executive Director Marian Edmonds-Allen and LDS therapist Lisa Tensmeyer Hansen join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about fears and anxiety in regard to suicidal thoughts among gay Mormons.
