Lucas Lawrence

Hi y'all! My name is Lucas Lawrence, I use he/him pronouns and I'm a junior from Long Island, New York. I declared a major in Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies because I wanted an academic framework for what I was thinking about in my personal life. Some of my favorite courses, such as Transgender Cultural Studies, Intro to Queer Studies and Sexual Diversity and Health, have given me this framework while also pushing me to think more critically about aspects of my identity where I hold privilege. Outside of the classroom, I spend my time working at the Women's Community Center to continue interrogating gender expectations and pushing for equity. I also work at the Hume Center for Writing and Speaking as a writing and oral communication tutor, where I help other students acknowledge how their identities form their biases and style for writing and speaking. I have office hours at the Women's Community Center and the Hume Center if you ever wanted to drop by, but if you'd like to schedule something, send an email to -- I would love to chat!
