SEXUALITY, GENDER IDENTITY AND FAITH
This one day event funded and hosted by Gender & Law at Durham (GLAD) will bring together academic and non-academic speakers to offer new insights into the lived experiences of LGBT people of faith, and the issues involved in fostering greater cohesion between LGBT and faith communities.
Speakers include Professor Yvette Taylor (London South Bank University) who will present findings from a new ESRC funded empirical project "Making Space for Queer Identifying Religious Youth" (2011- ) and Dr. Sarah-Jane Page (Aston University) who will draw on research from the AHRC/ESRC funded empirical project "Religion, Youth and Sexuality: A Multi-faith Exploration" (2009-11).
Other confirmed speakers include experts in theology, social psychology and law.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided during the day.
