(Re)Framing Faith: How LGBTQ Students of Color and Faith Make Meaning of Their Multiple Identities

Lecture by Chris Woods

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

7:00 p.m., Robert A. Jones Conference Room

There are very few, if any, spaces for LGBTQ college students of color and faith to integrate their identities in ways that are affirming and validating.  Therefore, students are challenged to make meaning of their identities in unique ways in order to make space for all of these complicated intersections of identities.  Join our guest speaker, Chris Woods, as he shares personal narratives and some of the findings of his research on how LGBTQ students of color and faith (re)frame their identities.

Chris Woods is Program Administrator at the NYU LGBTQ Student Center. Chris serves as the Anti-Racism Chair for the Board of the Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals.
