4: Religion, Sexuality, and Queerness with Reverend Jarel Robinson-Brown
Play • 1 hr 13 min
Episode 4 is all about religion, sexuality, and queerness as I am joined by Reverend Jarel Robinson-Brown - my friend and openly queer priest in London. He is also the author of the incredibly written ‘Black, Gay, British, Christian, Queer’ which is available to purchase now.

We discuss religion and queerness - and the complexities and confusion of their overlapping. The church has a long history persecuting the LGBTQ+ community - so how can one be both religious and queer? Is God love?

Jarel was also the target of a right-wing social media pile-on during the COVID-19 which spilled into the mainstream media press. We discuss how he handled the intense pressure of this period.

About Jarel: Jarel Robinson-Brown is a priest in the Church of England currently serving in the City of London. He is the Vice-Chair of the Christian LGBT Charity OneBodyOneFaith and the author of 'Black, Gay, British, Christian, Queer' published by SCM Press in July 2021.
