Genesis tells us of a grand beginning, the birth of the world in its immaculate form. Earth and seas, plants and light, animals and humans all co-existing, abundantly diverse, perfectly handcrafted.

 

With Christianity having a prominent history of being discriminatory against LGBTQ+ folk, queer people have long been left out of this story. The celebration of individuality, of God declaring things to be ‘good’ for simply being created by Him, originates from the very beginning. If everybody has been “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139: 14), then this assuredly applies to queer folk too.

 

Through intimate portraits of LGBTQ+ Christians and images of the natural world, Queerly Made seeks to show queer people as being part of creation, placing this marginalised group back into the story they have been excluded from.
