New Articles from Queer Theology
Here are a few of our most recent articles. You can also take a look at every article ever here, an LGBTQ+ Christian take on over 200 Bible passages on our podcast here, and a bunch of resources organized by topic here.
Mary: The Bad Ass Mother Of God - We often talk about Mary only at Christmas time, complete with images of her with the baby Jesus, for cutesy pictures depicting a blond haired blue eyed mother and baby, for sanctimonious sermons about peace and hope and love. We mash up the biblical narratives and tell a story of angels and shepherds and patient […]
Transgender Youth at Overnight Camps and Retreats - When I do trainings about transgender youth in particular (but sometimes LGBQ youth in general) one of the main questions has to do with overnight retreats/camps and lodging.

Before publishing a response here, we spent Thursday, Friday, and Saturday […]
