Jeremy Bishop graduated from Wake Forest in 2000, double majoring in Political Science and Religion. At the time of this interview, Bishop served as the Special Assistant to Secretary Solis at the US Department of Labor in the Obama Administration. In this interview, Bishop discusses his time as a student, specifically focusing on his involvement in activism across campus. He was a member of the GALBA, the predecessor to the gay-straight student alliance (GSSA). Bishop also highlights the general feelings of students and faculty members on campus during his time toward homosexuality. He distinguishes between the liberal professors and "WASP-y" student body. In his junior year, he recalls the controversy that ensued due to Susan Parker and her partner advocating for their marriage in Wait Chapel.
