How QUEER is YOUR Cross?

Nathan Hubbard

Nathan Hubbard, Vice President of       Q-CROSS@MSU

One Q-CROSS meeting included a time for arts and crafts. Our wonder leader, Jenn, decided a perfect art project would be coloring pictures of a cross. This was appropriately entitled, “How QUEER is YOUR Cross?

I found this ridiculous and incredible all at the same time. My partner and I immediately started coloring rainbows inside of this cross (see photos)—this symbol that represents a gruesome form of torture…this symbol that is at the head of so many just-white churches that have wanted to control and suppress the colors of my identity…this symbol that is never thought of as gay.

But here, our cross is queer.

And months and months later these crosses are hanging on our refrigerator—a constant reminder of the truly colorful love of God.
