Queer Women and Religious Individualism

Full Product Description

Melissa M. Wilcox explores the complex spiritual lives of queer women in the Los Angeles area. She takes the reader on a tour of a colourful array of religious and secular groups that serve as spiritual resources for these women - from the well-known Metropolitan Community Churches to Wiccan covens, from the Gay and Lesbian Sierrans to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Arguing that these women's stories are exemplary cases of postmodern patterns of religious identity, belief, and practice, Wilcox offers a nuanced analysis of contemporary Western spirituality and selfhood, and a detailed exploration of the history of queer religious organizing in Los Angeles. "Queer Women and Religious Individualism" is important reading for scholars in religious studies, sociology, women's studies, and LGBT studies.

Queer Women and Religious Individualism by Melissa Wilcox was published by Indiana University Press in September 2009. The ISBN for Queer Women and Religious Individualism is 9780253221162.
