Pride Month, Queer Theory, and the Bible

Join us for a virtual conversation

By Alexis James Waggoner | 5/29/19

As part of our available resources for Pride Month, we're hosting a call with a few of our scholars. Watch the replay here.

Join Brandy Daniels, Whitney Bauman, Jordan Miller, and me on Tuesday, June 11th from 6-7pmET. The event will be recorded so if you can't participate live, you can still sign up to join.

We will discuss issues like:

  • What does the Bible say about homosexuality?
  • What is queer theory and how did it develop?
  • How can we use queer theory to address the so-called "clobber passages"?
  • How has religious life provided a way to transgress what we consider heteronormative lifestyles?
  • How does radical queer thought and activism pave the way for a more just and generous theology and practice?

During the roundtable, the scholars will share some of their own work and reflections, discuss the above topics, and then we'll open it up for direct Q&A. Registration is free, and you can sign up here. The replay will be available immediately following the event so even if you can't listen live, I hope you'll join us!
