The Qu(e)erying Religion (QR) program is a campus initiative that fosters open spaces for U of T students, staff, and faculty who are interested in exploring the rich, sometimes troubling, and often sacred intersections of gender identities, sexual orientations, faiths, religions, theologies, spiritual practices, and cultures.
Sponsored by the Ecumenical Chaplaincy at U of T and the Multi-Faith Centre. For more information or confidential inquires email firstname.lastname@example.org.
And don't forget about Queer Orientation
Home Is: A Qu(e)erying Religion Showcase
“Home is here, not a particular place that one simply inhabits, but more than one place: there are too many homes to allow place to secure the roots or routes of one’s destination.” – Sara Ahmed
How do we make sense of "home" in the context of queer sexuality, gendered realities, kinship, faith, land, belonging and non-belonging? Join Qu(e)erying Religion for an intimate evening of spoken word, short film, music and conversation featuring a carefully curated group of makers from multiple faith traditions and cultural perspectives. Following a series of short performances from invited guests, QR hosts a community discussion on the myriad ways we define, inhabit, challenge, disassemble and create ideas of home.
All are welcome. A selection of light refreshments will be served, with vegan and gluten-free options available.
When: Wednesday, September 27, 2017 from 4 - 6 p.m.
