Common Awards Webinar: Being Black, Queer and Christian…

Friday 24 September 2021

Join us for the latest Common Awards webinar to discuss “Being Black, Gay and Christian” with Rev Jarel Robinson-Brown & Rosie Dawson


“Am I loved, Do I have worth? Is my life worth living?…These are three questions that I have in my own life asked myself, pondered, wrestled with, and largely, in fact entirely, because of my position in the world as someone who is Black Queer and Christian.” (Jarel Robinson-Brown)

  • What are the experiences of black, gay, men in the Church of England today?
  • How can we speak of God’s grace in the midst of LGBTQ+ oppression and marginalisation?
  • What does Queer theology have to say about the incarnation of Christ?
  • What is the role of the Church today in the lives of black and queer bodies?

These are just some of the questions that will be explored in the latest Common Awards webinar, entitled: “Being Black, Queer and Christian”. The journalist, Rosie Dawson, will be joined by the Revd Jarel Robinson-Brown to discuss his latest book, Black, Gay, British, Christian, Queer: Church and the Famine of Grace.

Jarel Robinson-Brown is the Assistant Curate at St Botolph’s-without-Aldgate in the City of London. Prior to that he served as Associate Chaplain to King’s College London and as a Methodist Minister. His research interests are in Bodies, Desire, Gender and Ethnicity in Egyptian Late Antiquity as well as Queer Theology.

Rosie Dawson is a religion journalist, documentary maker and radio producer with more than 20 years experience in the BBC’s Religion and Ethics department. She left the BBC in 2018 to pursue a freelance career and other interests, which include a lifelong passion for Theology.
