Queer Disbelief: Why LGBTQ Equality Is an Atheist Issue

Paperback – December 17, 2017

by Camille Beredjick (Author),‎

Hemant Mehta (Editor)

The past decade has brought unprecedented progress for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) people.

But this community is still far from achieving true “equality” especially in a political landscape heavily influenced by conservative religious interests.

One group in particular could help LGBTQ people in their fight for equal rights: atheists. Queer Disbelief documents the overlaps between the LGBTQ and secular movements: how they are alike and different, what they can learn from each other, and why it’s never been more critical for atheists to join the LGBTQ rights movement.
