Launches and Events

Would you like to know when your city’s You Have To Be Gay To Know God launch will be? Or would you like to invite Siya Khumalo to an event or interview your organization is hosting? Look no further. 

 
 

29 September. Festival. 2 pm until 4. Pietermaritzburg. I’m reading this. I’m leading a discussion on it. Let’s talk about #heterosexism, #patriarchy and #heteropatriarchy; about #RapeCulture, #BrettKavanaugh, #ChristineFord, #DonaldTrump and #JacobZuma. We’ll talk about toxic masculinity and political leaders steeped in it — but are nonetheless elected to power. Copies of #YouHaveToBeGayToKnowGod will be available for sale at R240 for today. Ciao!

 At the heart of religious prohibitions against sexual diversity is the belief that sex is about power over others, which must therefore be practiced (if at all) within the parameters set by religious institutions. But doesn’t this hypocritical policing lead to sexual abuse involving religious institutions? Books like #YouHaveToBeGayToKnowGod shed light on current events. Watch this interview before going to church — if you feel safe going there, that is.
