SPIT & SPIRIT
a digital magazine wrestling with the reality of faith
soul & body // sacred & profane // righteous & sinful
Spit & Spirit seeks not just to uncover whether it’s ok to be gay/bi/trans* but also what LGBTQ people have to bring to the table of faith and spirituality.
This is especially true for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people as we seek to sort out the difference between what the spirit tells us and what society tells us — for better or for worse — about our lives, loves, bodies, faith, and humanity.

What are people saying about SPIT & SPIRIT?
Spit and Spirit is like a warm blanket, a kiss from a lover, a hug from a friend, and a shove off the plank into a sea of gratitude. It broadens the definitions and labels we place on ourselves in the queer community and I am so glad it exists. Billy FLood
I’d just like to say that I absolutely love this first magazine. I love that it makes being queer central and tells stories of people who wouldn’t change that part of themselves. I love that it includes an atheist. I love that it doesn’t just say “I went through the shadow of doubt, but now I love Jesus more” but instead tells the story of people who went in other ways. These different stories struck me as honest without trying to manipulate. And they spoke truth to my experience.
So thank you. I look forward to what comes next. Becca B.
