April 29 2018April 29, 2-4pm

Eve Tushnet was raised in a secular family, and came out as a lesbian when she was in her early teens. In college she encountered Christ, through people who showed her love, welcome, and acceptance, and she became a Catholic, accepting the Church’s teaching on marriage and sexuality. Then things really got weird. In this seminar, she will explore what drew her to Christ, and then talk about what she wishes she had known when she became a Christian.

She will ask how Scripture and Christian history can reshape our communities, making them places where gay people can find love and kinship. Why are so many of our churches inhospitable places for gay people? What has to change for them to be places where gay people experience the God Who is love? And how can individual gay people come to accept themselves and experience God’s tender, cherishing love, without compromising their consciences or faith?

(Eve Tushnet is the author of Gay & Catholic: Accepting My Sexuality, Finding Community, Living My Faith and Amends: A Novel, and the editor of “Christ’s Body, Christ’s Wounds: Staying Catholic When You’ve Been Hurt in the Church.” She writes and speaks on everything from forgotten forms of Christian love to horror movies and figure skating. Hobbies include sin, confession, and ecstasy.)
