GLBT Religion & Spirituality - A Selective Bibliography: 2011–present

Consult also the updated lists: 1950-2000,  2001-2005, and 2006-2010.  This selective book list indicates the large number and wide range of published viewpoints available to lesbians and gay men interested in exploring their lives as spiritual journeys.

Specifically excluded from the list of published resources are: novels and poetry; items written in languages other than English; brochures, study guides, and tracts; articles in periodicals; chapters of books; books exclusively addressing the spiritual dimensions of the AIDS epidemic or the experience of living with AIDS; doctrinal statements and position papers about gays and lesbians adopted by religious institutions; and blatantly homophobic treatments of the subject. Some of the books listed were produced by publishers affiliated with religious institutions, and many of the titles listed were not written by lesbians or gay men. Book titles are arranged alphabetically by title within the categories listed below. With a few exceptions, titles are listed in only one of the categories. Because not every title was examined, some titles may be inappropriately categorized, or could be categorized differently.

NOTE :This bibliography uses the format used on previous lists. Some categories do not have entries under them. Entries will be added as books are published and come to our attention over coming months.

The Bible and Homosexuality: How the Scriptures Changed My Mind. Director: Justin Lee. (DVD). 83 minutes. The Gay Christian Network. DVD release Mar. 2012. Lecture. "What does God ask of me as a gay Christian? Am I called to lifelong celibacy? Or would God bless a same-sex romantic relationship?" These questions troubled Justin Lee, executive director of The Gay Christian Network. For him, it was all about the Bible, and he wasn't convinced by most of the Bible arguments he'd heard on both sides. In this 80-minute workshop, Justin explores not only the most commonly-cited Scripture passages on the issue, but also many other passages he believes offer a very different picture. Through it all, he says, our goal should be to see what God really has to say, not to make the Bible fit our own preconceptions. With plenty of humor and careful Bible analysis, Justin shows how Bible study took him on a journey to an unexpected conclusion—one that might surprise you.

Call Me Troy. By Scott Bloom. (DVD). 100 minutes. Frameline. DVD release 2011. Documentary. Profiling the life and times of one of the gay community's most visible and tenacious advocates for change, Rev. Troy Perry, Call Me Troy is a truly inspirational story about a remarkable and dynamic individual whose activism was decades ahead of its time.

Love Free or Die. (2013) 83 minutes. Studio: Wolfe Video.  DVD Release Date April 9, 2013. Actor: Gene Robinson.  Directors: Macky Alston and Sandra Itkoff.   (Special Jury Prize winner Sundance 2012). This film is about a man whose two defining passions the world cannot reconcile: his love for God and for his partner Mark. It is about church and state, love and marriage, faith and identity-and one man’s struggle to dispel the notion that God’s love has limits. In the film, Gene Robinson becomes the first openly gay person to be elected bishop in the high church traditions of Christendom. Bishop Robinson’s elevation in the sleepy New Hampshire diocese in 2003 ignited a worldwide firestorm in the Anglican Communion, one that has become so heated that there is still a chance of a schism in the 80 million-member denomination. One year after being muzzled by the Archbishop of Canterbury, he finds himself speaking from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial at Barack Obama’s Inauguration. Gene Robinson confronts those who use religion as an instrument of oppression, and claims a place in the church and society, not just for LGBT people, but for all.

The Perfect Family. (2012) 84 minutes. Studio: Virgil Films and Entertainment. DVD Release Date June 26, 2012. Actors: Emily Deschanel, Kathleen Turner, Jason Ritter, Richard Chamberlain, Elizabeth Pena. Director: Anne Renton. Suburban supermom Eileen Cleary (Academy Award® nominee Kathleen Turner) is the ultimate Catholic, and when she's nominated for the coveted Catholic Woman of the Year Award at her local parish, it looks like she's about to get the plaque to prove it. Only one final test remains - introducing her family to the church board for the seal of approval. Now, she must finally face the truth about her nonconformist family - a truth she has been glossing over for years. Her gay daughter, Shannon (Emily Deschanel), is about to marry her life partner. Her unhappily married son Frank Jr. (Jason Ritter) is having an affair with the local manicurist. And Eileen's own marriage to a recovered alcoholic is pulling at the seams... This heartfelt dysfunctional family comedy boasts a memorable performance from Academy Award® nominee Turner as the conflicted and comical matriarch, alongside a bright ensemble cast including Richard Chamberlain and Michael McGrady. Newcomer director Anne Renton keeps the pacing taut and crafts an honest, modern family tale, and writers Claire V. Riley and Paula Goldberg infuse just the right amount of seriousness and levity into their script, reminding us that family is never truly perfect.

This Is What Love in Action Looks Like. (2012) 74 minutes. Studio: TLA Releasing. DVD Release Date May 8, 2012. A stirring documentary about a Christian fundamentalist conversion camp and the young people who fought against it. When 16-year-old Zach told his parents that he was gay, they sent him to Love In Action, a religious organization that promises to cure homosexuality. Originally for adults, Love in Action had recently begun a program for teens, many of whom were sent there involuntarily. The camp's draconian methods for 'sexual redemption'; prompted filmmaker Jon Morgan Fox to document the ensuing protest against the group. Including interviews with several youths who had been in the program, the then current director of Love in Action (himself a former gay) and many young protesters who were compelled to mobilize against the organization, this documentary is an important look at gay youth, intolerance and skewed religious beliefs.
