I interviewed Dr. Lacey Bagley who was facing an ecclesiastical
disciplinary council this past Sunday morning from the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she was excommunicated.
This episode was recorded the night before the
Dr. Bagley is queer and is in a mixed-orientation
marriage. She and her husband have been life long members of the
church and have been devoted to their faith and faith community.
Due to their decisions to find solutions to make their marriage
sustainable and her strong advocacy as a mental health practitioner
to support LGBTQ+ individuals in her community (she is the founder
of the first mental health clinic in Provo, Utah owned and ran by
queer professionals - Celebrate Therapy), she is being charged with
adultery and apostasy.
Dr. Bagley taught as an adjunct professor and
earned her Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Brigham Young
University in 2021.
