Hi, I'm reading first parts of your essay but just to let you know: the "algbtical" URL link unfortunately leads to an error page.
The what? I don't understand.
The link to the lexicon.
I have just finished reading this morning and wow thanks a lot for your text.
Thanks for learning me a lot about USA history! (Btw I would love to read an Adam and Steve story)
Thanks for your excellent summary about queer is "self love + the right to love for human beings" and christianity "love for God" + empathy in both communities. That's a great sum up helping understand your text.
Your explanation using the "transganderism" word is also truly clear. It helps a lot to understand what is (was?) the situation in USA and I can see similarities with my country even if Christianity is becoming less and less important through time here, people continue to have this way of thinking and considering queer people. I hope it will become easier to live as a Christian queer person in your country, maybe it's already becoming more welcoming.
Take care and thanks again
