All or most of you know my story.

I have a close family member through marriage who has a brother heavily involved in North Star and is in some leadership position. He overshares on facebook about North Star in what feels like bragging. I suspected for years that he was gay. He is married to a woman. My heart breaks for her. tick, tick, tick.

It purports to be a place where gay mormons can find community and still be part of the church.

Thanks gemini-

It's nice when someone explains something, and even posts a link, when the OP doesn't.

Otherwise Northstar sounds like any other misleading LDS platitude.

I assumed that people on here know about Evergreen and North Star.

BYU used to do conversion therapy

Today in the year of 2021 the lds church still is promoting the people who have same gender attraction marry the opposite gender although it has been proven over and over that this does not work in the long run.

In the year 2021 North Star is promoting "cuddle parties". Many people have suffered with their teachings and they are still teaching it.

I just read the northstar.org website. I'm speechless. I read one of the profiles. https://www.northstarlds.org/voh-daniel-emma

I googled Josh Weed, remember him?

Around this time I was sexually assaulted by my companion several times (at the time I didn’t understand that this is what was happening). I didn’t resist his assaults. My body froze and even experienced arousal. My brain, though, was screaming that what was happening was wrong and I didn’t want it. I desperately wanted to stop it but couldn’t seem to be able to. Years later, with a lot of therapy, I learned that mine was not an abnormal reaction to being sexually assaulted.

He has a beautiful family... but I feel sorry for him and his wife. He prefers to be with men, and she settled for a man who will never be attracted to her the way a person should be attracted to their spouse.

I think marriage is difficult enough (for most people) when the spouses are attracted to each other.

They do have beautiful children, though.

I learned about North Star when I first heard about Jayce Cox's story, going through conversion therapy at BYU. In those days, it was the Evergreen program. It was just horrifying to read about.
