Starting out on the journey

Posted on by Amanda Rice

Happy Easter, to those who are celebrating today! For others, best regards for Passover, Holi, spring equinox, and the recently passed or upcoming new year.

As we all celebrate spring, I am celebrating a new beginning, too. Tonight am announcing my next project, Queerituality, to record interviews with LGBTQ people about their spiritual faith and religious journeys. I think it is time that queer people have a voice about spirituality, rather than listening to religious leaders tell us where and whether we fit in.

This summer, the plan is to drive around the country to record interviews in person. I will be taking portraits as well, to document the faces and stories of queer people of faith. (Full details here.)

To determine my itinerary and connect with people of the widest possible diversity of geographies, ages, ethnicities, religious backgrounds, genders, political affiliations, relationship statuses, etc., I need your help.

I know you know gay/bisexual/transgender people, and that some of them were raised to be religious or spiritual. Please share this project with your friends who might be good participants, or who could recommend participants. Or, go ahead and make some recommendations yourself:

I appreciate you in advance!
