Making Space for Queer-Identifying Religious Youth by Yvette Taylor


Making Space for Queer-Identifying Religious Youth by Yvette Taylor

Taylor explores how sexual and religious identification and expression mutually and complexly construct one another in times of religious-sexual citizenship. The book charts young people's understanding of religion, investigating the experiences, choices and identities of queer youth involved in inclusive churches.
