As Believe Out Loud's senior communications strategist, Alison Amyx works diligently to foster healthy, authentic, and challenging conversations on justice for all LGBTQ people. While she started her career in the faith-based environmental movement, Alison knew she would eventually turn to LGBTQ advocacy after she realized she was gay during her last semester of seminary. In 2015, Alison was selected to participate in Union Theological Seminary's Millennial Leaders Project. In her spare time, Alison makes her own deodorant, sings in choirs, and serves on the board of BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz. Alison believes in evolving identities and currently holds the following labels close to heart: Georgia native, person of faith, trans partner, Baptist, and queer femme.
