Local event regarding same-sex attraction canceled and not initiated by BYU-Idaho

A university spokesman at BYU-Idaho confirmed that an event referred to as an “LGBT Conversion Therapy Event” by The Daily Beast  has been canceled and was not sponsored by BYU-Idaho or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“While this event was originally planned to use a campus classroom, it was not initiated by BYU-Idaho,” according to a university statement from BYU-I.

The event was organized by Michael Williams, a marriage and family therapist in Rexburg.

The event was canceled by a local stake of the Church.

Williams told The Daily Beast that he does not act on behalf of the Church, but took it upon himself to organize the event.

Those who have questions regarding the Church’s position regarding same-sex attraction can visit mormonsandgays.org, according to the BYU-I statement.
