Wilson Field Trip Fall '18

Prof. Mark Wilson’s students visited the Bay Area’s oldest LGBTQ center and 3rd oldest LGBTQ center in the U.S., Berkeley’s Pacific Center for Human Growth, to learn about the center movement in the LGBTQ community. In addition to learning about services at the Center, one of the coolest things about our visit was meeting the front desk volunteer who’s from Moraga and graduated from Saint Mary’s in the late 1980’s.  Her son is gay and was the boy scout who challenged his troop and was a significant part of making the scouts more inclusive of LGBTQ scouts.  The students discovered that there are many different people included in the LGBTQ community, including alums and heterosexual parents.
