Calendar for April

The Calendar of Queer Saints and Martyrs for the full year now lists only the most important of the large number that could be included – “most important”:  those widely recognized as saints, and also with good reason to be described as in some sense queer.

The monthly pages provide a more comprehensive listing of queer people in church history, including some lesser figures, some for whom the descriptor “queer” is more speculative, and some who were clearly were not saints. All are important for illustrating some part of queer Christian history.
