Registration is now open for our May 24-26 camp!
This retreat is called “Beyond 101″. We’ll spend time exploring queer stories in the Bible and seeing how the Bible speaks to queer liberation. We’ll share our stories, laugh a lot, worship together, and dream up ways to bring change to our communities.
So much of the conversation around queer spirituality, especially in Christian circles, continues to revolve around the “is it sin?” question. Books have been written about a deeper queer theology, but many of them are still inaccessible to folks whether because they are too academic, or too expensive, or just not well enough known. Popular conversation remains at the 101 level.
While we believe that 101 level is important, we also know that many of us are longing for more. We want to be in a place where we don’t have to answer the “how do you know it’s not a sin” question. We want to be in a place where we can talk about how our queerness and/or trans*ness has deepened our spirituality. We want to talk about where we see queerness in the Bible, how our faith has changed our lives, and how we want to work for change in our communities. We want to share our stories and find community with one another.
Camp this year is open to ages 18 and up. The cost is $200 and covers food, lodging, and materials for the weekend. We do have some scholarships available, on a first come, first serve basis.
