Alexandra first came to GLAAD in the summer of 2012 as the National News and Field Media intern. She graduated from Connecticut College with degrees in Sociology and Religious Studies and a certificate in Public Policy and Community Action in May, 2013. The latter was the culmination of a three-year independent research project that explored the impact of religious communities on the well-being of LGBT youth and young adults. Alexandra happily returned to GLAAD as the Programs & Communications Fellow, enjoyed her time as a Media Strategist, and now serves as Strategist, Global and US South. Her interest in advocacy results from an extensive background working with the Episcopal Church, mentoring kids and teenagers, and being raised by history nerds who love to talk about democracy. Her hobbies include reading feminist blogs, eating snacks, listening to '90s music, and nerding out about social movements.

Furthermore, he claims that you can only be considered an orthodox Christian if you do not believe in LGBT equality.

So, in short, religious freedom only applies to Tony Perkins.
