LGBTQI folks: You are not alone!Posted: February 7, 2015
A few years ago, we started a secret Facebook group for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and/or queer (LGBTQI) members of the Greenville College community. We are mostly alumni, but we welcome anyone with a connection to Greenville College. As of today, February 7th of 2015, we have 58 members. Our oldest alumni attended Greenville in the 1950s and we have a few folks who are recent graduates. While we are a diverse group, we all have at least two things in common:
1) we lived at Greenville College
2) we are minorities when it comes to gender identity and/or sexual orientation
It has been a great joy to connect with others and to realize that although many of us endured painful experiences, often in isolation, we are not alone in the journey! If you are/were a member of Greenville College community and you identify as LGBTQI, please consider joining us!
Whether you want to talk about your experiences in ex-gay therapy, process a courageous conversation you just had with your mom, discuss how to integrate your faith and sexuality, or vent about the time someone spit on your dorm room door or spray painted “faggot” on your car — we’re here to listen and encourage, and chances are good that at least some of us have been through something similar. You’re not alone!
