Transgressing Christianity: Stonewall and Queer religiosity
After Stonewall, the focus on social rights and acceptance of LGBTQ+ people has been at the forefront of society. Especially the rights of gay and lesbian people, which have been advocated for through, among other things, the marriage equality act.
The Church of Norway has advocated for such inclusion but, looking abroad, the Churches stand as symbols of anti-queer liberation, and few accept LGBTQ+ people as legitimate members of their respective religions.
With scholars and activists from France, UK, USA, and Norway, we want to discuss what Christianity is post-Stonewall, and how it can be a voice of queerness within our society.
Our panelists are:
Linn Marie Tonstad from Yale University, Halvor Moxnes from University of Oslo, Bee Scherer from Canterbury Christ Church University, Emeline Daudé from Institute Protesant de Theologie de Paris, and Andreas Ihlang Berg from University of Oslo.
