Understanding the Evolving Story of Gender & Sexuality

8:30 | Gather
9am – 12pm | Workshop
What does it mean to be queer? How can we better understand queerness so that our faith communities can be more inclusive? How might the story of the evolving universe inform our understanding of sexuality and gender? What might a church that is fully embracing of the queer community look like?
Please join us as we explore these questions and more during a workshop on understanding gender and sexuality, and how that relates to Catholic identity. Chris McNultywill lay the foundation for our discussion with the basic language and tenets of queer theory. What is queer theory? What terms are most inclusive and appropriate? How might we need to challenge our pre-conceived understandings of the human person? How do gender and sexuality intersect with race, ability, and economic status?
