Perspectives on the Bible and LGBT People

Rev. Chris Glaser, a gay Christian activist of the past thirty years, wrote HRC's For the Bible Tells Me So guide and edited the Gender Identity and Our Faith Communities curriculum. As part of these guides, he created two stand alone articles discussing homosexuality and gender identity in the Bible:  

The Bible and Homosexuality: A Christian View, by Rev. Chris Glaser

Gender Identity and the Bible: Jewish & Christian Perpectives, by Rev. Chris Glaser

Also, Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson, Dean of the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies and Vice President of American Jewish University, offers an excellent podcast entitled, "The Bible: Inclusion and Love," discussing LGBT equality from a Jewish perspective.  The podcast is available here.

For more discussion of the Bible from an LGBT perspective, please see HRC's weekly resource Out In Scripture.  For a look at the Bible from a transgender specific perspective, please see HRC's weekly resource Out In Season.
