Dr. Kaitlin Gabriele-Black
My research and expertise focus on the intersections of sexuality, gender and faith, specifically around evangelical Christianity. I have written and presented extensively on being LGBTQ+ in evangelical Christian families and on queer student engagement on evangelical Christian college campuses. I have also conducted research and published in the areas of same-sex parenting, adoptive parenting, religion and faith, and trans- and gender-nonconforming college students. I am the principal investigator of the ongoing Exvangelical Parenting Study, a mixed-methods project exploring the experiences of those who have left evangelical Christianity and how these individuals make sense of their conservative upbringing, while navigating the transition to parenthood. I'm a member of the American Psychological Association and its Society for the Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity, and a member of the National Council on Family Relations and its feminism and family studies section.
