Queer & Christian (Q&C) is a community of LGBTQIA+ people seeking Jesus together. We support one another, hold space for healing, study scripture, protest anti-queer theology, and discover the Jesus who cares deeply about marginalized people—the Jesus who cares about us.

Kezia Setyawan is a recent graduate from the University of Oregon majoring in journalism. Her work centers community members on the margins and aims to provide them with sustainable platforms. Through portraiture, she spotlights the conversation surrounding the subject’s perspective and their environment.
The exhibit, Dimana? Disini, translates to Where are we? We are here. This gallery is dedicated to my uncle, Hans Widjaja. Through portraits of family and friends, it will demonstrate the breadth of experiences and perspectives Chinese Indonesians have in regards to understanding one’s identity.
Ink Nash waníksha Lúkwaiya ku shuyapuɨmtki Mitchell Lira. Tiinmamí tiichám. Wash nash mɨłɨłá. Wash nash skuliła íchna x̱wíimitx̱aw skuulitpamápa úlikanpa ku pikchaashiłá.
My Indigenous name is Lúkwaiya and that is how I preferred to be addressed. Until you learn the pronunciation of that, my English given name is Mitchell Lira. I am a Tribal Member of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs and a Student at the University of Oregon. lastly, I am a photographer and this land is Indigenous land, remember that.
Being an indigenous person means seeing media that is supposed to tell my story but rarely, if ever represented me or my community. That’s what has driven my desire to tell stories about Indigenous communities from an Indigenous perspective. There is a lack of Indigenous storytellers, that’s not because we are not here and interested, it is about who is controlling the narrative. The journalism industry has been exploitive, disrespectful, dishonest, and uninformed when trying to tell the stories of Indigenous peoples. Journalists have often sought to exploit or sensationalize our community’s stories rather than reveal the intense and vast beauty that lies within. I want to tell stories that humanize people and their existence, stories that tell the whole, rich picture of the lives lived in community. This series of photos come from my time in the Middle East and at the Warm Springs Early Childhood Education Center’s graduation; these photos are examples of the ways I want to tell people’s stories. We are here - Ichnaatash wa.
