Sexing History Podcast

How do you come out in a religious community that loves you conditionally? This question is explored in the latest episode of Sexing History - entited The Stained Glass Closet - which focuses on the experiences of three gay men who were priests or seminarians in the St. Louis diocese beginning in the 1990s. Their overlapping stories, their friendships, their faith, and the ways in which they came out to themselves and each other within Catholic institutions, speak to the intertwined histories of desire and devotion.
