QCF with Mateo Williamson

 Registration is closed for this event
A co-chair of our Transgender Caucus and a young scientist, Mateo Williamson brings a heart of love and a hungry curiosity to his life. He's found his way back to Catholicism since his transition to becoming a transgender man.

                                                            Tuesday, March 18, 2014  9:00PM Eastern, 6:00PM Pacific

Mateo attends the Catholic Newman Center at his university, where he is an altar server and part of the Campus Ministry Leadership Team. He dialogues with clergy and members of the Catholic hierarchy to advocate for the safety and respect of LGBT people in Catholic spaces, and was awarded support from the Davis-Putter Foundation and the National Organization of Gay and Lesbian Scientists for his efforts to create awareness about spiritual abuse. He currently serves as co-chair of DignityUSA's Transgender Caucus. He identifies as a transgender male with a heart for social justice, with particular interest in migrant rights and LGBT youth advocacy. He finds inspiration in the initiative and history of DignityUSA, and as a scientist he affirms that gender and sexual variance represents the wonder of God’s intricate and beautiful creation.
