Toccoa Falls College
Natalie Carter is a pseudonym for a student at Toccoa Falls College. She expects to graduate in July 2021. She is a queer woman.
Toccoa Falls College’s student handbook outlines rules of behavior for students and includes several specific anti-LGBTQ+ policies, including regulation of romantic and sexual relationships between people of the same sex and the prohibition of being transgender.
“I do not feel safe coming out on campus and I do not feel safe coming out on social media because I am afraid of other students at the school outing me or the school finding out about my sexual orientation on its own,” she said. “The result would be that I would get thrown out.”
Natalie is raising her voice to protect all LGBTQ+ students at Toccoa Falls College and religiously affiliated colleges across the country.
