description
Amanda Miller graduated from Wake Forest University in 2004, majoring in sociology and minoring in Women's Studies. At the time of the interview, Miller was working as a medical laboratory technician in the US Army. In this interview, she candidly recalls discovering her identity as a lesbian beginning a few days after her high school graduation to her coming-out to her parents in Easter of her first year in college. During her time at Wake Forest she recalls feeling supported by many faculty and staff members but specifically references Dr. Ken Zick and Dr. Mary Gerardy. While she notes the homogenous student body and administration were conservative, the faculty were more progressive and accepting of members of the LGBTQ community.
