Current Projects

I am currently working on a book manuscript based on dissertation research examining Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride parades in the U.S.

I am also starting work on two new projects.  For the first, I investigate public opinion change through interviews with North Carolinians who have changed their minds about same-sex marriage.  For the second, I will look into the international protest response to recent Russian laws that drastically restrict speech in support of LGBT rights.

Elon faculty and staff may log in to add more detail to their profile.
