Coming Out as Christian

"You'd be surprised how many conversations I start by wearing a cross and a Pride bracelet," observes Religion major Ethan Falleur '16, in a December 9, 2015, Huffington Post article, "Coming Out as Christian." "In the three years since I came out publicly as a gay man, I've gotten rather used to casually working my sexuality into conversations with people in the first few times I meet them." "What's harder, though," he adds, "is coming out as Christian. I'm not at all ashamed of either piece of my identity, but people's perceptions of Christians at my über-secular, Ivy League college are somewhat more fraught than their perceptions of anyone who falls under the LGBTQIA+ umbrella."
