Is gay spirituality a genuine type of religious expression, or is it simply another example of identity politics?
This book is the first book to weave the disparate strands of gay men's experience into a clear and organized response. The author examines the wide range of materials written by gay men, from autobiographies to theologies, as examples of authentic religious expression. He filters these through social theories and his own narrative to produce an engaging set of meditations on gay spirituality.
The author places his meditations in the context of theology, myth and symbol, ritual, and spiritual culture in order to create a compelling portrait of gay spirituality as a serious cultural expression. The result is a perceptive - and provocative - exploration of gay spirituality in North America.
