Amy is joined by guest Matthew Nelson to begin their discussion of LGBTQ+ History. This is Part One of Four and features powerful personal stories from both Amy and Matthew. Topics include Proposition VIII, Obergefell v Hodges, and the experience of spiritual rape.

Matthew Nelson currently serves as the Dean of the Sophomore class and teaches interdisciplinary courses in the History Department at Menlo School in Atherton, CA. He hopes to offer a seminar to Menlo students on queer theory and gender studies in the near future. Prior to these glorious years at Menlo, he was the chair of the Theology Department at the Woodside Priory School leading students in explorations of the history of religion, philosophy, and Benedictine Catholic spirituality. Matthew received his M.Div. from Harvard University and is striving to finish his studies in Stanford’s Master of Liberal Arts program. Matthew and his loving husband call their industrial loft in Oakland home.
