Identifying as both spiritual and queer is not uncommon. Indeed these identities often so fully merge within personal experience as to be indistinguishable; many members of the LGBTQ community find the overlap to be vital, inspiring and comforting. At the same time many voices in our culture - queer as well as straight, secular and religious - posit the two identities as mutually exclusive, in firm and eternal opposition. These tensions are often felt most intensely within intimate relationships, with families, friends and faith communities.
Four Beloit College students will speak about negotiating their queerness and their spiritual and religious identities:
Max Brumberg-Kraus, sophomore
Nadir Carlson, sophomore
Julia Helmeid, junior
Andrew Wood, senior
Greg Buchanan, Psychology professor, will moderate the panel.
This event is the fourth in the Intersections series this year. Intersections explores the diverse experiences and challenges of living "at the corner" of two or more particular social identities.
