A Belmont University group of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students has been granted official status by the university. 

Belmont Bridge Builders was approved Friday afternoon as an official student organization after being denied affiliation two times in the past year.

According to Belmont student paper Belmont Vision, the BU Office of Student Affairs says the group will be affiliated with University Ministries as it will "explore the relationship between homosexuality and the Christian faith."

Bridge Builders' mission is to examine the intersection of Christian faith and LGBT-related issues through group discussion.
