Yesterday, as a few times before, I was on a panel for Wheelock College’s class “Creating Welcoming Environments for LGBT Families in Education and Human Services” (undergrads in social work / early childhood education / education) taught by Ellie Friedland and Melody Brazo and sometimes Kim Westheimer; I spoke with Elizabeth Castiana and David Wilson -- alas, Roy Old Person and Ashleigh McClenthen couldn’t make it -- about what it means to live our multiple identities including our GLBTQ (et al) ones (as usual, I focused on being a transperson of faith and a fat ally called to social justice work); then we took questions.
As much as we missed Roy and Ashleigh, and as much as the unusual traffic made David and I late, I think this may well have been the best yet.
