Cole Parke

Cole works with the Political Research Associates, a small progressive think tank located in Boston, Mass. As PRA’s LGBTQ Rights Researcher, Cole largely concentrates on tracking right-wing evangelical Christians in the U.S. and the role they play in the exportation of politicized homophobia and transphobia around the world. Through that research, Cole endeavors to support on-the-ground organizers and activists in developing more strategic approaches to the work of creating a safer and more just world for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people.
