Expanding the Circle Conference
Geology Student, Colgate University
As a geology major at Colgate University, Jake Mahr finds academic life is becoming more of an escape from extracurricular obligations than anything else. Mahr is a co-leader of Lambda, Colgate's LGBTQ community; is an intern and facilitator for Yes Means Yes, Colgate's enthusiastic consent and positive sexuality, sexual assault prevention seminar; organizes a weekly talk show with Colgate's radio station that centers on queer perspectives; is a zinester and an artist; and is an activist. All together, through classes, through friends, through faculty mentors and partners in crime, Mahr has learned, unlearned, engaged and acted with the incredible support of the LGBTQ community.
