I want people to love who they are. And I want people to know that they don’t have to change anything about their sexual orientation or gender identity in order to be fully loved and accepted by God. Harmful theology is killing LGBTQ people, both spiritually and literally. This fact, coupled with my own personal experience of pain and loss, makes me passionate about the work I do. I have fifteen years of experience in the field of Sign Language Interpreting, I am in an interracial same-sex marriage, I’m the dog mom of two, and I live with an invisible disability. These intersectional identities make me passionate about fighting for the equality and dignity of all people.
