“The reality is you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss yo have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same again. Nor should you be the same nor should you want to.” – Elizabeth Kubler Ross
This is the second and final instalment of a two-part series on the LGBTQI experience at Trinity Western University. In this space, LGBTQI Alumni and Allies reclaim the voice they did not have while studying at TWU. These TWU stories are a mere drop in the bucket as far as the number of queer and allied alumni who attended TWU is concerned: these clips represent only 20% of all submissions just from TWU students who graduated at some point between 1996-2006 and are affiliated with One TWU. While reading these stories, keep in mind just how many students have gone through similar experiences or may be going through them right now.
