And GOD saw it all was very good - Catholic LGBT People Telling Their Stories

By Sandra Taylor and Hazel Barnes (Editors)

Cover And GOD saw it all was very goodHere you will find 34 personal stories divided into the six themes of:

  • Family
  • Is Catholicism home?
  • A religious life?
  • A long journey
  • Significant events
  • Working for understanding and acceptance.

The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and non-gender-binary authors are aged from their 20s to their 80s and come from all walks of life in 13 European countries: Albania, Belgium, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, and Spain.

These stories are for reading silently and for reading out loud, by all people - whether religious or not, whether LGBT or not. The authors share their stories of being LGBT and Catholic to help increase awareness, understanding and acceptance of LGBT Catholics and to ease the journeys of those still working on how to live out being both LGBT and Catholic.
