Intersectionality Essay

Sunshine's picture

I watched a Spoken Word performance called "God is Gay." It is a poem about the hypocrisy of religious people who say hateful things about gay people. The person who wrote the poem is a white cis male christian gay man. I'd be interested in looking closely at this poem along with an essay from "Queer Religion" which is a book written by Donald Boisvert. I'm hoping to find an essay that features somebody not as privileged, in order to talk about how power and privilege (probably drawing from the essay that Riva ewrote to talk about power) change how people deal with intersectional identities.
