For October, which is LGBTQ history month, the Theology and the Arts Program solicited art from the community to create a coloring book on the theme of "Queer Theofuturism."
The history of the surviving and thriving of LGBTQ people in the US has been shaped by folks who imagined new ways of seeing, loving, being, and connecting with the holy. In the United tradition of play and creativity, we invited all students, staff, faculty, and alums to submit line drawings that reimagine myths, sacred stories, or any spiritual or religious images in ways that challenge and play with assumptions about gender, bodies, love, and spirituality. We encouraged folks to reimagine old stories and see what might be possible for a future that is more just, more colorful, and includes all of us.
(Due to the openness in submissions and our value for freedom of expression, some of the artwork in the coloring book may not be safe for work or appropriate for all ages, as some of the images include nudity or sexual themes.)
