Interview with Teak Hodge (SFS '21), Part 1
In this interview, Sivagami "Shiva" Subbaraman speaks with Teak Hodge (SFS '21) about their time working for the LGBTQ Resource Center as well as their experiences as a queer student at Georgetown. The interview mostly focuses on the topic of visibility for LGBTQ students at a University that is predominantly white and cisgender. Subbaraman tells the story of how the large window came to be installed in the Center’s office space and how it helped create a visible and welcoming space not only for students but for other campus community members to engage with and learn more about the work of the Center. Subbaraman and Hodge further discuss the importance of this visibility for students, especially for those who lacked having any visible LGBTQ leaders at earlier stages in their lives, and how the Center provided a safe space for them to feel comfortable at whatever point they were at in their journey.
