The first book to explore the theologies of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and
transgender (LGBT) people of color
* Addresses issues of homophobia in communities of color, including ethnic
churches, as well as racism in LGBT communities
* Pioneering work on the global and local intersections of race, sexuality, and religion
To date, no book has systematically examined the theological writings of LGBT people
of color. Nor has any book explored how such writings might actually transform
contemporary theological reflections on race and sexuality. This book remedies these
gaps by constructing a rainbow theology around the theme of bridging or mediation.
Rainbow Theology is the first book to reflect upon the theological significance of the
intersections of race and queer sexuality across multiple ethnic and cultural groups.
This is particularly important in light of the current polarizing debates over issues of
race, sexuality, and religion within churches and communities of faith around the world.
