In modern Britain, what does it mean to be queer and religious? Unorthodox tells the stories of LGBT+ people of faith. Bringing together artists, activists, religious leaders, community workers and writers, this talk explores how LGBT+ Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus and Sikhs navigate their faith, why they stay and what it means to believe. Séan Richardson (editor of the book of the same title) will lead this talk. Séan is an academic, curator and writer based in Nottingham whose research tackles the lasting resonances of queer history in contemporary society through literature and heritage.
This is an OpenFaith Event organised by Fr Johannes Arens, Christian Faith Advisor & Anglican Chaplain, DMU
