THE QUEER VIRTUE Film Shorts:
5 Micro Sermons ON THE VIRTUE THAT QUEERS POSSESS AND WHAT CHRISTIANITY CAN LEARN FROM IT.
The Queer Virtue Film Shorts proclaim a robust, theologically-grounded, queer-positive Christianity. Topics include: Identity, Risk, Touch, Adoption, and Scandal.
The takeaway: Queerness is a gift, and authentic Christianity is extremely queer.
#1 Identity - release date: April 14, 2016
#2 Risk - release date: April 20, 2016
Abraham and Sarah left everything they knew to follow God’s call. This kind of risk is the verb form of faith. Queer people live this kind of risk every day, all over the world, simply by being the people God created us to be. <View Film>
#3 Touch - release date: April 27, 2016
Love – including divine love -- involves touch that both wounds and heals. Queer people take on this paradox openly, modeling what it means to push past fear and find the love we all need. <View Film>
#4 Adoption - release date: May 4, 2016
Queer people create communities that, for many of us, become adoptive families. Christian community is supposed to be like that: an inviting home, not an exclusive club. <View Film>
#5 Scandal - release date: May 11, 2016
Queer people have long been cast as scandalous, just as Jesus was in his day. Like Jesus, queer people know: embracing scandal creates an ethical vision that frees us from shame and affirms the dignity of every human being. <View Film>
