After Stonewall, focus on social rights and acceptance of LGBTQ+ people has been at the forefront of society. Especially the rights of gay and lesbian people, which have been advocated for through the marriage equality act among other things.
The Church of Norway has advocated for such inclusion but, looking abroad, the Churches stand as symbols of anti-queer liberation, and few accept LGBTQ+ people as legitimate members of their respective religions.
With scholars and activists from France, UK, USA, and Norway, we want to discuss what Christianity is post-Stonewall, and how it can be a voice of queerness within our society.
