Black, Gay, British, Christian, Queer

Friday 24 September 2021

Jarel Robinson-Brown is the Assistant Curate at St Botolph-without-Aldgate in the City of London. He is also the Vice-Chair of the global LGBT Christian Charity OneBodyOneFaith and has recently published Black, Gay, British, Christian, Queer by SCM Press.

 

If the church is ever tempted to think that it has its theology of grace sorted, it need only look at its reception of queer black bodies and it will see a very different story.

In this honest, timely and provocative book, Jarel Robinson-Brown argues that there is deeper work to be done if the body of Christ is going to fully accept the bodies of those who are black and gay.

A vital call to the Church and the world that Black, Queer, Christian lives matter, this book seeks to remind the Church of those who find themselves beyond its fellowship yet who directly suffer from the perpetual ecclesial terrorism of the Christian community through its speech and its silence.

Join us as we have a conversation with Jarel to discuss faith, sexuality and his new book.
