Speakeasy: Nov 17, 2010 - Ashley Horan, LGBTQ bullying

Ashley Horan serves as the intern minister for the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis. In her capacity as a liaison to students at UC Davis, she has spoken about the intolerance that has fueled a widely publicized rash of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) suicides recently, and the resulting "It Gets Better Campaign" on YouTube and Facebook.

Horan, who identifies as a queer person of faith, speaks about the perception that people of faith are responsible for perpetuating intolerance, and posits UU as a place and a faith welcoming of all people. She shares a message of encouragement for all who are being bullied because of their sexual preference. Interviewed by Autumn Labbe-Renault.
