is a blog and resource hub that emerged from a community autoethnographic research project that was coordinated by Eric Van Giessen in 2016. The purpose of this site is to further distribute the valuable community resources gathered for the original project and provide a platform for the continued sharing of poetry and story emerging from the experiences and lives of LGBTQIA2S+ people of faith.

Finding your way:

The Queerly Faithful Blog highlights the poetry and writing of Eric Van Giessen as well as other LGBTQIA2S+ Christians, many of whom are connected to Generous Space Ministries - an organization that connects LGBTQIA2S+ people to vibrant faith community. CHECK OUT THE BLOG>
