Understanding and Evaluating Queer Theory

What is queer theory? Where did it come from? Why was it formulated? In this session, we will investigate queer theory and explore the impact it is having on this moment in time. We will see that despite appearances, the current questioning of gender is not a new phenomenon, but is the fruit of a theory that has been growing steadily for over three decades. This session is concerned with helping Christians to understand the context into which we seek to proclaim the gospel. By understanding better how queer theory is shaping our world, we will be better equipped to speak truth into it.
