Despite the breadth of scholarship in the area of social justice in Human Geography, research on the politics of sexual identity needs greater attention, specifically where Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender and Queer people have suffered religious persecution. Over the summer of 2009 I conducted research addressing the intersection of sexuality and Christianity at Our Hope Metropolitan Community Church in Athens, GA. Employing the epistemologies of Queer theory and Critical Geography, I used ethnographic methods to find that although LGBTQ affirming churches did provide benefits to the LGBTQ community, issues of racism and heteronormativity remained to be solved.
