Chris Ambidge is a member of the Department of Chemical Engineering & Applied Chemistry at the St. George campus of the University of Toronto. In this oral history, he discusses his experience immigrating to Scarborough, Ontario from the UK with his family in the 1960s and his educational journey, having attended Scarborough College for undergrad in the 1970s and going on to teach at the school later in his career before moving to the St. George campus. He also shares his experience of being gay at a time when queer students were often bullied, which tied into his increased involvement in the Anglican Church community with a particular emphasis on LGBTQ inclusion. Chris also touches upon the buildings at UTSC and shares personal stories.
