Whole embodied humans: a conversation for LGBTQ+ History Month

This talk will explore reclaiming the spirituality of trans and nonbinary people and reclaiming our sacred space in faith traditions, not as disembodied spirits, but as whole embodied humans.

Join us for this year’s LGBTQ+ History Month Lecture organised in collaboration with our Multifaith Chaplaincy.

This talk will explore reclaiming the spirituality of trans and nonbinary people and reclaiming our sacred
space in faith traditions, not as disembodied spirits, but as whole embodied humans.

The discussion will cover how our trans and nonbinary bodies can be loci of the divine as much as any
other, and have particular truths to express about what it means to be spiritual and human, and about the
interactions of faith and gender and their impact on social justice.

Rev Peta Evans is Senior Pastor of Metropolitan Community Church of North London and Trans
Awareness Trainer for Enfield LGBT Network. Peta comes from the Methodist and Celtic traditions of worship, and loves to create poetry and imagery in worship, as well as having a passion for social and environmental justice.

The lecture will take place from 6.00pm-7.00pm, followed by refreshments. 

This will be a hybrid event, held in the John Henry Brookes Lecture Theatre, and online.
