INTRODUCING

A growing repository of personal essays by Latter-day Saints wrestling with issues related to gender identity (e.g., gender dysphoria and/or transgenderism) who are striving to find congruence and peace within the context of faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Supreme Court Background

North Star Responds to Questions Regarding Amicus Curiae Brief Filed with the US Supreme Court

North Star is not a political organization nor does North Star promote traditional marriage as means of addressing same-sex attraction. Some members of our community chose to participate in the amicus brief. The views they expressed are their own, individual views; they do not speak for North Star International as an organization.


We are faith affirming

North Star supports Latter-day Saint individuals and families concerned with sexual orientation or gender identity who seek to live in joy and harmony within their covenants, values, and beliefs as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

We offer community and support

We seek to foster supportive community, which includes family, friends, and spiritual leaders, as well as fellowship and friendship with others—through our online forums and in-person events—who share their life experiences and commitment to the gospel.

We provide resources

With resources ranging from official Church publications to personal stories, North Star provides resources for individuals, family members, and Church leaders that help individuals attain greater peace, fulfillment, and sense of individual worth.

Questions people have asked

What is North Star’s connection to the Church? Is North Star an “ex-gay” organization? Why do you use the term “same-sex attraction”? What is North Star’s position on “reparative” or “conversion” therapy? See answers to these and more!

North Star is a place of community for Latter-day Saints seeking support and resources addressing sexual orientation or gender identity.
