1: Making Sense of Queer Christian Lives

Rights and permissions Cite this chapter

This chapter uses an interpretive framework to explore the expanding repertoire of narratives through which LGBTQ Christians make sense of themselves and their lives within a dominant narrative of exclusion. An interpretivist lens highlights the significance of situated cultural contexts, reference groups, and cognitive migrations in understanding collective social change as well as individual sense-making. An interpretive framework also reveals the complexities of supposedly dominant or hegemonic institutions, such as religion, as sources of both inclusion and exclusion; of meaningful self-understanding and simultaneous oppression.
