Meet your Old Testament Transcestors
Time & Location
About the Event
There are many characters in the bible that act outside the prescribed gender and relationship roles within the Old Testaments in the Bible. Looking at these stories through queer eyes we meet some surprisingly queer people. So come meet the boy with the princess dress, a smooth skinned plotter who is an excellent chef and a warrior princess and her sidekick who is deadly with camping equipment.
Chris Dowd spent a decade planting a queer friendly fresh expression called Journey in the West Midlands. At the same time, he served as a special category minister for the United Reformed Church as a University Chaplain at Aston University. He later retrained as a minister of Word and Sacrament within the United Reformed Church and currently serves in two Churches in Birmingham. He finished his doctorate in 2015 on the pastoral care of gender variant people. He is the coauthor of two books on making churches more friendly for gender variant people and those who love them.
