PRISM (People Respecting Identities and Sexualities in Ministry) is a WTS group for LGBTQIA+ identifying, questioning, and exploring students. Previously, this group gathered under the name “Proclaim”, which is also the name of the national professional community of rostered leaders and seminarians, organized through Extraordinary Lutheran Ministries (ELM), for those who publicly identify as LGBTQIA+ and for whom sexuality and gender are a public part of their ministry. Because LGBTQIA+ people have the right to choose whether they want to be public or private with their sexuality and/or gender in ministry, there was the need for a more expansive group at WTS. To ensure that all who desire to be involved with this community are included, this group re-formed under the name PRISM. All are welcome here. Contact Emily Ronsberg or Brittany Barkus with any questions. This is a safe affinity space for LGBTQIA+ people, and participation in PRISM gatherings will be confidential.
