A Very Queer History of the Catholic Church: Part 1
Play • 43 min

In honor of LGBTQ History Month, we are revisiting some of our favorite episodes of the podcast. Enjoy our return to Queer Church: Part 1!

When you think about the Catholic church and its relation to the LGBTQ+ community, either as a believer or a non-believer, it likely isn’t as an ally. But the church’s stance on same-sex love isn’t as cut and dry as you might think. Over the span of two millenia, the church has adapted, however slowly, to a changing world. Today, we’ll start part one of our exploration of the history of same-sex love in the Catholic church, and how the church’s perspective and enforcement has changed over 2000 years.

Your host is Levi Chambers, co-founder of Gayety.
