Queer Ways of Theology—International Conference in Warsaw

Saturday, 14th March 2015, 9:00am–6:00pm, Austrian Cultural Centre, 7/9 Prozna Street. Conference in English. Possibility to use simultaneous translation into Polish.

What is Queer Theology? What are its main variants and strategies? Why is it important for LGBTQ people? How does it challenge traditional churches and their teaching? These questions will be answered by speakers from the United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, and Poland. In Poland, Queer Theology has just made its first steps.

This conference is an important event in Poland, where Queer Theology practically does not exist at theological colleges,

explains Artur Barbara Kapturkiewicz, the main organizer from Wiara i Tęcza.

The radical inclusiveness of Queer Theology is a great challenge for the Catholic Church. It draws our attention toward so many groups of Christian believers, whose rights to fully participate in the Catholic community are still being denied. […] Questions raised by Queer Theology can be helpful to every Catholic trying to deepen his reflection on his faith. Is my God also the God of outcasts? Am I ready to share the Kingdom of God with those outcasts, vagabonds and queers?

asked Marzena Zdanowska, The Sign (Znak), 2011.
