Apple CEO Tim Cook and retired NBA All-Star Dwyane Wade joined Utah leaders Wednesday to announce the completion of an area advocacy group’s marketing campaign to build new homes that present companies for LGBTQ youth within the U.S. West.

Encircle, a non-profit offering psychological well being companies for LGBTQ youth, has surpassed its aim of elevating $8 million to build eight new homes with places in Arizona, Idaho, Nevada and Utah geared toward offering secure areas and stopping teen suicide.

The ensuing controversy confirmed that tensions stay between the LGBTQ group and the state’s predominant religion.

Church students say the Salt Lake City-based religion taught that homosexuality may very well be “cured” within the Nineteen Seventies. The church has since stated homosexuality just isn’t a sin, although it stays against same-sex marriage and intimacy.
