About Dr. Prince's Notes

As research for his book, Gay Rights and the Mormon Church: Intended Actions, Unintended Consequences, Dr. Gregory Prince captured copious notes and quotations from public records, private documents, and interview transcripts.

Dr. Prince has generously shared this compelling content, organized by subject, for reproduction here. We believe this resource will be particularly interesting and useful to Mormon Studies scholars, Religious Studies faculty and students, as well as anyone with an interest in Mormonism and LGBTQ+ topics.

"Watching what happens with this particular church is really a bigger and more important story than just for church members. I can feel the Church wrestling with this, so it tells us something larger than just being a story for people who are in the Church."

Laurie Goodstein, NYT National Religion Correspondent, November 8, 2015
