Sexuality and Religiosity: The Religion-family Associations for LGBQ People

Presented by: Elizabeth Holman, Ramona Oswald, Sarah Okrey-Anderson, Kevin Zimmerman, Katie Barrow, Kate Kuvalanka, Marian Moser Jones, Samuel Allen

Religiosity and faith group affiliation may be a context of strength and support for sexual minority individuals, couples, and families; it may also serve as a source of conflict given the historical condemnation of same-sex relationships in most denominations. The purpose of this panel is to draw attention to this paradox of religiosity as a possible source of conflict and also a possible source of support in the face of other conflict for LGBQ populations. The papers discussed in this symposium together provide a complex view of the religion-family associations for LGBQ couples, parents, and children.
