022 - Luke Willson | Gay On Campus at Liberty University

Today we get to share an incredible conversation we had with Luke Wilson.  Luke is one of the leading voices talking about the discrimination of LGBTQ+ students and private religious universities. He is a part of a class action known as The REAP (https://www.thereap.org/) which is looking to end the mistreatment of LGBTQ+ students at schools who receive federal tax payer funding.  Luke holds a BA in English, summa cum laude, from Liberty University, an MA in English from McMaster University, and an MTS from Vanderbilt University. He is a PhD Candidate in Comparative Studies at Florida Atlantic University, a Dissertation Fellow through the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, and a Sessional Lecturer at University of Toronto.
