Class Description

Stories highlighting debates over the place of gays and lesbian believers in American religious life fill the media nearly every day. These reports give us some indication of the varieties of religious phenomena experienced by lesbians and gay men in diverse religious traditions. Many hold a deep alliance to these traditions. Others follow a more sectarian impulse. Still others pursue new forms of spiritual practice outside easily recognized religious structures in popular culture. This course will give students an appreciation of the variety of religious life among lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender persons of faith. This ONLINE course meets asynchronously using Moodle. It has no required meeting times. High-speed internet connection required.
