"1 in 2,500 people has an intersex condition, meaning that their body cannot be unproblematically categorized as male or female. Theological accounts of sex, gender and sexuality often assume sex is binary and stable, but what if this is not the case? In this session, we'll discuss some of the specificities of intersex conditions, learn what intersex Christians have said about the interactions between their intersex identity and their Christians identity, and explore what the implications might be for people of faith."
Hidden Perspectives encourages inclusive discussion on dominant interpretations of biblical texts and narratives found in scholarship and mainstream culture. Working with groups and individuals from range of faith and non-faith backgrounds, this ambitious project aims to foster an atmosphere of inclusivity and diversity in which biblical texts can be interpreted."
26th July 2013, The Bible and the Social Sciences conference, University of Manchester: “Reading Bodies: Intersex, Homelessness, and ‘Marginal’ Interpretation”
