Jordyn

For me the most powerful possibility that energizes me about the Equality Ride House is the hope that there may be one less person out there in the world who believes they don't belong. It doesn't seem too long ago that I was an eager freshman on a Christian campus with little imagination of how to navigate my identity as an queer woman of color.

Randall

I never felt called to activism but I have often had strong feelings about wrongs in my community which I wanted to address. Instead of vocalizing my disappointments I usually just kept to myself or vented with friends. It wasn't until I came out as gay that I realized it's time to speak out.

Hi I'm Susan Cameron, and I sometimes say that my activism is a form of penance. Dr. King said, "History will have to record that the greatest tragedy ... was not the strident clar of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people."

Aly

Hello! My name is Aly Thatcher and I am a California native. I am passionate about social activism because I believe in humanity. I believe that things can be better, and I want to be actively involved in making conservative evangelical institutions a positive environment for humans of all social locations.

Natasha

Hello, my name is Natasha. I’m a crew member at the Equality Ride House because some of the people I love the most are current students at Christian colleges. When I went to Biola University, I struggled deeply with coming to terms with my faith and sexuality.

Susan V.

I feel inspired to do this work with Soulforce because I want to change the narratives of students at fundamentalist evangelical colleges. As someone who entered into APU’s campus with no knowledge or understanding of my sexuality (shout-out to internalized homophobia and repression) the process of coming out in this environment and without a familial support system to rely on for help was intensely painful.
