Queer Faith @ The Parlor Room in Northampton, MA


all the details to come…

Queer Faith — I think of it as a small act of radical resistance. It is queerness and faith in the same conversation, lovingly held there. Queer Faith resists the reduction of faith to that which is not queer
and the reduction of queer to that which does not hold faith. It is an act of resistance by way of integration.
— Lindsey

Queer Faith

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: GROUNDED /A live storytelling event
stories that remake faith

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.

There are a lot of self-identified queers in the Queer Faith audience and among the storytellers, but you don’t have to be queer to attend or tell a story. “Queer” here is used broadly, as in out-of-the-box, as in coming from a place somewhere outside of ‘normal’. Lots of straight people claim room in that space, especially when it comes to faith.
