Queers in the Kingdom: Let Your Light Shine
Harkins Sedona 6 - Theatre 5 Wed, Feb 25, 2015 12:15 PM
If you are a student on a Christian College campus you were probably raised in an evangelical, Christian home. You went to church regularly and were told that being gay (or lesbian, bisexual, transgender) was a sin and that you were going to hell. You were told this over and over by your parents, Sunday school teachers, youth leaders and pastors. If you arrive on campus and are struggling with your sexuality you will think that you are going to hell, that being gay is the worst sin and that, if anyone finds out, you will be expelled. This scenario has deep roots in the evangelical history of the United States where Bible-based homophobia is normative and discrimination by churches and Christian Colleges is accepted.
