Jessica Rathbun-Cook is the youth programs director at ROSMY, an organization serving lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender, questioning, and queer (LGBTQ) youth. As the only organization of its kind in Central Virginia, ROSMY creates a space where young people can safely articulate who they are, gives them the opportunity to explore that identity, and celebrates the diversity of personalities that make a community unique. As a queer person currently in the process of ordination in the Presbyterian Church (USA), Jessica is drawn to conversations about the gap between the “queer” world and the “church” world, and is deeply invested in ways we might create spaces where those worlds overlap.
