We are doing things differently for the 2017-2018 school year. We are breaking up the semesters into 4-5 week themes. We began the school year with theme of “Sexual Health” and are now moving into the theme of “Queer Theology.”
It is difficult to start group discussions on queer theology if we haven’t looked at the gendered disempowerment between men and women. And yes, Christianity is still caught up in the binary system with only a couple of denominations leading the way toward trans inclusion. Our Religious Advisor, Rev. Jenn Tafel shared books from her personal library during this week’s event. She also discussed the discrimination she continues to receive in her ministry.
