How would our sense of spiritual liberation for LGBTQIA+ folks transform if we understood our embodied existence as sacred altars to the Divine? How can we tend to, nurture, and care for LGBTQIA+ bodies, in the words of trans theologian Liam Hooper, like a “sacred grove?” What daily rituals and offerings can you make to honor the queer divinity in you?

Join CLGS’s Asian/American and Pacific Islander Roundtable (AAPIRT) for an interactive workshop, where we will be deconstructing and reconstructing new formations of gender and sexuality as a sacred form of embodied altar making hosted by Maij Mai.

Maij Mai (they/he/sib/homie/fam) is a BlackVietnameseBipolarTransNonbinaryQueer currently existing in and with beloved community in Winston-Salem, NC. Maij’s formal education and training consists of a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies, as well as a Masters of Divinity from Wake Forest University.
