Below is a light-hearted Q&A with Lane!
Q: What is your role at Bradley Angle and how did you get involved?
Answer: I am the LGBTQ Program Intern at Bradley Angle. I am completing this internship as part of my field placement for my Bachelors in Social Work.
Question: What is your history working with the LGBTQ community?
Answer: I have been working with this specific community since 2008. I started as a youth and worked in various roles as a youth supporter at an LGBTQ youth safe space in Washington.
Question: Why do you believe this program is important for survivors of DV?
Answer: LGTQ survivors face unique barriers and experiences with domestic violence. Without this specific space to talk about unique set of challenges, the unique challenges aren’t likely to be addressed.

Answer: I’ve been to 10 different countries and I’m only 20 years old!
