What do you most love about One TWU?

I love the people, and the community that we are able to create, but most of all I love that it’s a place to exist and authentically be myself.

What do you most love about One TWU? 

So many things. My TWU grad quote, by Janet Mock, is a good summary of some of my favourite things about One TWU: “I believe that telling our stories, first to ourselves and then to one another and the world, is a revolutionary act. It is an act that can be met with hostility, exclusion, and violence. It can also lead to love, understanding, transcendence, and community.” I love One TWU for the opportunities to raise consciousness, the strong friendships and mutual support. the space to process and share our stories, and as a place to shine as our fabulous selves.

What do you most love about One TWU?

My hope for the church is that we can put community first, and put politics behind us. It's extremely discouraging to see some church leaders STILL believe it's their part to choose who sits at the table or not. I LOVE One TWU because it's an ever-growing table and it provides a space for TWU community members who might otherwise never have met an LGBTQIA2S+ person. I also love the people. So many of my "people" are because of One TWU. I guess that's multiple things...

What do you most love about One TWU?

Possibility, hospitality, hope. As American poet laureate Amanda Gorman says, “There is always light if only we are brave enough to see it. There's always light if only we're brave enough to be it."
