Danice has about 15 years in Youth Ministry – first in the context of Canadian Baptist churches, and more recently (since coming out as queer and marrying her favourite redhead) with LGBTQ+ youth across the country. She loves reading stories through a queer lens, throwing dance parties, and meeting thoughtful youth who have questions and ideas about life, faith, sexuality, and Beyoncé (among other things). She is currently living in Vancouver and working for Generous Space Ministries.
Queering our Faith Stories
How are we supposed to engage with a book that has been used to oppress the queer community for so long? This workshop will be about de-weaponizing Scripture while reclaiming its stories by learning to find ourselves represented within them. This workshop will be particularly geared to younger people (Youth, Gen Z, Millenials) with a curiosity to explore the overlap between the Bible and queer folks.
