In this workshop, we'll talk about the sacred potential of being in a queer body, & make artworks/zines that reflect on these conversations.

This Is My Body - Reclaiming The Queer Sacred

About This Is My Body - Reclaiming The Queer Sacred

This is a closed workshop for queer people only.

The bodies that we exist in as queer people are usually excluded from churches, mosques and synagogues, and there is a lack of official rituals that celebrate our queer bodies, loves and life-changing events.

Nonetheless, we create communion through community and we give sacred meaning to each other's bodies, sometimes drawing on long-historical traditions of queerness as the image of transcendence.

In this workshop, we will talk about the sacred potential of being in a queer body, and make artworks/a zine that reflect on these conversations. The workshop is open to people of all faiths and none.

Required materials:
Participants will be sent images relevant to the workshop in the post, and as such we require a shipping address when you purchase a ticket. There is no additional cost for these.

We are also offering a Zine Making Pack for this workshop, which will include pens, pencils and paper for those who do not have them. This is an optional pay-what-you-can add-on, and can be purchased on Eventbrite when you book a ticket for this event.

Ticket sales will end on Saturday January 23rd to allow for postage of materials packs to all attendees.

About the workshop leader:
Jonah Coman (he/him) is a trans educator and artist living in Glasgow. His main research is on trans and queer theology in medieval history, and he has worked with queer as well as heritage organisations such as TIE, Pink Saltire and The Vagina Museum. His zine practice centres queer and disabled being and history. In his spare time, Jonah loves big walks with his three-legged greyhound, Chaos.
