What is Queer Faith?

“Queer” — different, outside-center, both/and instead of either/or, quirky, extra-ordinary 
“Faith” — center, root, what we trust in, how we orient ourselves

Queer Faith is a live storytelling event bringing queerness and faith together, bridging gaps between tradition and change, and celebrating faith found, lost, re-claimed, re-made in all kinds of creative ways and spaces.

In a Queer Faith storytelling event, you will hear stories from people who connect to traditional religions and religious language, who carry pieces of traditional language but have significantly re-shaped the way they speak of the faith that grounds them, and you will hear stories from people who do not resonate with the traditional religious frames at all.

QUEER FAITH: GROUNDED will focus on stories that speak to how our queer faith - found, lost, re-claimed, re-made, grounds us and gives us something we can trust to stand/sit/nap/struggle/connect/live from.
