“It’s not contradictory things, you know?”: Experiences of LGBTQ emerging adults from Evangelical Christian backgrounds.

By Katie Gabriele-Black, PH.D. | 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. in Room 109B in the Harrington Learning Center (HLC)

The Evangelical Christian context can be a difficult space to be LGBTQ, given Evangelical interpretations of the Bible and often-conservative beliefs about sexuality and gender. This talk will address the following questions: What is it like to grow up in an Evangelical environment? How do queer young adults come to terms with and integrate their sexual, gender, and faith identities? In what ways are these young adults able to hold onto their faith, and in what ways are they not? How are they creating community and taking action in support of those with LGBTQ identities, particularly in Evangelical spaces where they are not welcome?
