Q Collective Scholars in the News
Maurice Gattis, Ph.D., the Senior Advisor to the Q Collective and an associate professor in the School of Social Work, recently detailed how LGBTQ+ youth are overrepresented in the rising population of people experiencing homelessness.
His article on the news website SWHELPER goes beyond recounting the risks these youth face, e.g., higher incidence of substance abuse, sexual assault, and becoming victims of hate crimes, to outlining a framework for solutions.
VCU asked a handful of VCU faculty, students and staff to describe what Pride Month means to them. Archana Pathak, Ph.D., interim director of Q Collective, tied the celebration to resilience and a sense of belonging.
