From queer to eternity: spirituality in the lives of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people
Not another book about why religion should accept lesbian, gay and bisexual people, but instead, one that asks why any self-respecting queer would want to have anything to do with spirituality. A diverse collection of queer Buddhists, Christians, Jews, pagans, new-agers and other holy homos give their answers. How is being gay spiritually advantageous? What are the connections between sexuality and spirituality? And what are the implications of spiritual beliefs for queer politics, sexual behavior, community and identity? A wide-ranging and ambitious work that challenges social, religious, and sexual orthodoxies.
