Synopsis

'A fascinating and thoughtful exploration of faith in the modern world. If you're wondering why it matters and how to make sense of it, read on.' Clare Balding



Is it possible to believe in God and be gay? How does it feel to be excluded from a religious community because of your sexuality? Why do some people still believe being LGBT is a sin?





The book of Queer Prophets contains modern-day epistles from some of our most important thinkers, writers and activists: Jeanette Winterson tackles religious dogma, Amrou Al-Kadhi writes about trying to make it as a Muslim drag queen in London, John Bell writes about his decision to come out later in life, Tamsin Omond remembers getting married in the middle of a protest and Kate Bottley explains her journey to becoming an LGBT ally.





Essays from: Jeanette Winterson, Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, Amrou Al-Kadhi, Padraig O Tuama, Garrard Conley, Juno Dawson, Rev. Winnie Varghese, Keith Jarrett, Jay Hulme, Lucy Knight, Tamsin Omond, Erin Clark, Michael Segalov, Jarel Robinson-Brown, John L. Bell, Mpho Tutu van Furth, Karl Rutlidge, Garry Rutter, Rev Rachel Mann, Jack Guiness, Dustin Lance Black, Ric Stott. Afterword: Kate Bottley

Ruth Hunt was the Chief Executive of LGBT rights charity Stonewall between 2014-2019. Under her leadership Ruth redefined Stonewall's role as a charity, from one that enables change to one that empowers others to make change happen. After becoming CEO, Hunt spearheaded Stonewall's commitment to trans equality, launching A Vision for Change which sets out how Stonewall will help achieve legal and social equality for trans people across all areas of their lives. Hunt attended St. Hilda's College, Oxford, where she studied English and was elected President of Oxford Student Union. Prior to Stonewall, Hunt worked at the Equality Challenge Unit where she led work advising higher education institutions on sexual orientation and gender identity equality. In March 2019 she was appointed to the UK Government's first LGBT Advisory Panel on LGBT Health in the NHS. Hunt is a practising Roman Catholic.
