Being an LGBTQI+ employee in a faith-based school

17 May, 2022

For those who identify as LGBTQI+, working in faith-based schools often includes a level of fear or distress about the impacts this may have on their working lives. Many report a sense of exhaustion at having to conceal their true selves at work, often over long periods of time.

Today (17 May) on the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT), we reshare this Independent Voice article where two IEUA-QNT members share their stories as LGBTQI+ employees in faith-based schools.

Given the risks involved in speaking out, we have preserved both members’ anonymity.
