  • SHE’S NOT A CHRISTIAN?!!

    July 3, 2020 by

    It has been a long time, hasn’t it? The last time I shared my writing, I was commenting on how Pete Buttigieg doesn’t represent the entire queer community. How times have changed in just four months. This post is going to be short and sweet. It’s just an update on where I’ve been, why I’ve been absent from this platform, and where this is all going. Long story short: Well, not a Christian by the definition that most understand. To understand what I’m going to say, we need to use… Read more

  • Grading Mayor Pete’s Queer Card

    February 28, 2020 by

    I want to talk about this whole “is Pete Buttigieg gay enough” situation. I keep seeing lots of commotion on Twitter about folks arguing back and forth on Mayor Pete’s presentation of his own queerness and whether his flavor of gay is helpful or harmful to the wider LGBTQ+ community. This is a loaded topic, so let’s break it down a bit. The Queer Card First of all, is anyone “too queer” or “not queer enough?” The answer to that is a hardy “no.” When we talk about queer identities,… Read more

  • Releasing the Idol, Theology

    February 13, 2020 by

    Sometimes Christians are confused about who we worship. It’s easy to get mixed up and begin to follow Theology rather than following God. Sometimes it’s easy to believe that Theology is unchanging and cannot be touched and that it must be preserved at all costs. We treat Theology like a porcelain doll in a stuffy attic full of family heirlooms, never to be altered or questioned, forever preserved under centuries of dust and debris. The reality is that Theology changes all the time- or at least it probably should. Broken… Read more

  • I’m Done Arguing Theology

    February 7, 2020 by

    Recently, I was thinking about what exactly it is that I’m trying to do through my work as a queer writer and advocate in religious spaces. Some queer advocates and activists feel compelled to change the minds of Evangelicals through their theological work, arguing theologically that queer people are not an abomination, but a blessing. Many LGBTQ+ Christian activists do intense theological exploration to show well-meaning, yet misguided believers that they do not need to remove queer people from their homes and their churches, leaving them to suffer severe abandonment… Read more

  • When Queer Spiritual Gifts Meet Toxic Religious Beliefs

    January 30, 2020 by

    It seems to me that most people are threatened on some level by the gifts of others. For example, I tend to feel this irrational sense of insecurity when I come across someone else’s writing, especially if they find themselves in the niche genre of “queer Christian” writing. When I read someone else’s blog, I get this strange fear that my own writing is invalid. This fear tends to turn into a brief moment of defensiveness, a scoff at the talents of another human because in that moment, I cannot… Read more
