ac The first book to explore the theologies of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people of color ac Addresses issues of homophobia in communities of color, including ethnic churches, as well as racism in LGBT communities ac Pioneering work on the global and local intersections of race, sexuality, and religion To date, no book has systematically examined the theological writings of LGBT people of color. Nor has any book explored how such writings might actually transform contemporary theological reflections on race and sexuality. This book remedies these gaps by constructing a rainbow theology around the theme of bridging or mediation. Rainbow Theology is the first book to reflect upon the theological significance of the intersections of race and queer sexuality across multiple ethnic and cultural groups. This is particularly important in light of the current polarizing debates over issues of race, sexuality, and religion within churches and communities of faith around the world.For example, in my essay a#39;aI Am Yellow and Beautiful, a I cite posts from Grindr, the online hookup app, as well as the work of ... a Cherokee Two-Spirit professor of English at Texas Aaamp;M University, uses interdisciplinary sources in her/his work.
