LDS mothers of gay children plan anti-Prop 8 vigil

Mormon mothers of gay children are staging a candlelight vigil in Salt Lake City to oppose the LDS Church's support of California's proposed gay-marriage ban.

Co-hosted by Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG), Equality Utah, the Utah Pride Center, the Inclusion Center, Affirmation and the Human Rights Campaign, the event will be held Sunday at 6 p.m. at Library Square, 210 E. 400 South.

In a news release, organizers invited all allies and members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community - Mormon and non-Mormon - to join the vigil to support civil rights. On Tuesday, Californians will vote on Proposition 8, which would eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry.
