Queer et religion

AAC pour un numéro spécial de Journal of Gender Studies Intersecting Identities: Being Queer and Religious. DLC  septembre 2023.

The broad objective of this special issue is to provide a comprehensive analysis of the lived realities of LGBTQ+ religious individuals. Specifically, the issue aims to explore how religious practices, faith and spirituality intersect with non-normative genders and sexualities to investigate how these intersections shape and are shaped by the everyday experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals. Through a theoretical and empirical examination of these relationships, the issue seeks to provide new insights into the categories of gender, sexuality, and religion, and to offer a critical perspective on their relevance in contemporary contexts.

Grounded in an awareness of the dynamics of gender and sexuality, this special issue seeks to highlight research on lived religion. It endeavours to move beyond the binary query of whether individuals can only either be religious or LGBTQ+ to explore how they can be both through combined identities leading to empowering and agentic processes. This special issue will seek papers that explore the intricate dynamics between religion, gender, and sexuality within various contexts, including cultural and geographical ones. We aim to provide a comprehensive understanding of these relationships across diverse locations, spiritual beliefs, gender identities, and sexual orientations.

 Possible topics might include but are not limited to:

  • LGBTQ+ intersections with religion;
  • Embodied experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals within religious and spiritual contexts;
  • Queer religious geographies;
  • The role of activism and institutional change within religious contexts, with a focus on non-normative genders and sexualities;

  • The experiences of LGBTQ+ refugees and asylum seekers in relation to religion;
  • The role of spirituality in the lives of LGBTQ+ individuals and communities;
  • Intersections of disability, religion, gender, and sexuality;
