I am a Queer Christian who believes our causes inside LGBTQ spaces and beyond belong to us all.
Intersected & Interlocked.
Being a Queer Christian is resistance and the Bible encourages it.
We are a part of an ongoing story of redemptive movement toward equality, inclusion and justice for all humans.
Belief & Being
Bodies / Minds / Spirits
Discrediting the experiences of Queer bodies feels like discrediting the divine creation of God’s purpose & love for our individual presence in living. This love harbored in our uniqueness is meant to be experienced because it is a part of God’s vision and embodiment.
Audre Lorde offered us the truth that each individual does not live a single issue life – there are layers to us. With that noted, I believe that your struggle is mine & mine, yours. It is my belief that we were created to help one another to flourish. I believe we do this by tending to the literal dirt we were given life from, so that when we return we have tended to all of God’s people.

Hi, I’m Rachael and I’m delighted you’re here.

Currently, I work alongside 5 beautiful humans with a local The Reformation Project Chapter for LGBTQ Inclusion within Greater Atlanta, awaiting the start of graduate work at Columbia Theological Seminary in the Fall of 2019 & seeking reform within the greater Church to include all of God’s people.
I’m on a journey to discover my body & gender identity. Currently, I feel safe in saying I identify as Non-Binary with the use of They/Them/Their & She/Her/Hers pronouns.
