How would our sense of spiritual liberation for LGBTQIA+ folks transform if we understood our embodied existence as sacred altars to the Divine? How can we tend to, nurture, and care for LGBTQIA+ bodies, in the words of trans theologian Liam Hooper, like a “sacred grove?” What daily rituals and offerings can you make to honor the queer divinity in you?

View a video recording of this CLGS AAPI Roundtable Workshop where we deconstructed and reconstructed new formations of gender and sexuality as a sacred form of embodied altar making.
