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!
