Description

Revealing the underappreciated progressive contributions of a liberal LGBT church

David K. Seitz maps the affective dimensions of the politics of citizenship at one large LGBT church, focusing on debates on race and gender in religious leadership, activism around police–minority relations, outreach to LGBT Christians transnationally, and advocacy for asylum seekers. Through cultural geography, queer of color critique, psychoanalysis, and affect theory, he stages reparative encounters with citizenship and religion.
