Mel (Mary Ellen) Kitchen

University Center, C201

A Jersey girl at heart ( what exit? 14a Bayonne), Mel brings to the Pride Center a strong, committed allyship for the LGBTQ+ community on campus, the Lehigh Valley and beyond.  Mel most especially focuses her efforts on Catholic faith based ministry to the queer community and founded You Are Mine which meets monthly at St. Francis Retreat Center in Bethlehem.  She is a firm believer in the interconnectivity of all life beings and the loving responsibility of each of us to work for the benefit of all.  You can expect to see Mel and her therapy malamute Gracie around campus this semester.  If you would like Gracie to spend time with your department or club, please email her at mbk411@lehigh.edu or pridecenter@lehigh.edu
