In July 2009 a Bible was put on display in GoMA alongside the notice: 'If you feel you’ve been excluded from the Bible, please write your way back into it.'
The exhibit, Untitled 2009, was intended to be a reclamation of the bible as a sacred text, created by Rev Jane Clarke, a minister of the Metropolitan Community Church.
Part of 'Made in God’s Image', one of a series of 2009 exhibitions focusing on human rights, it was condemned as a sacrilegious act by churches across Scotland, and globally, as negative reports broke out online.
Now ten years on Untitled 2009 is back on display and the words collected in its margins spoken aloud onstage by a collective of LGBTQ performers brought together as part of Queen Jesus’ 10th anniversary celebrations.
What has changed in the last ten years and what do these words tell us about queer lives in Scotland?
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Untitled 2009 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
