When AIDS was first identified in New York in 1982, communities of faith were required to face their own sense of belonging and mission. In honor of these 40 years of awareness and activism, General Theological Seminary’s Center for Queer Theology is curating Queer Advent | Anticipating Joy, a four-week worship series centering LGBTQ+ life and celebration this holiday season.
Conceived by The Rev. Dr. Eric Thomas, Creative Director, and The Rev. Dr. Carla Roland Guzmán, Executive Producer, under the musical direction of Buck McDaniel, General Seminary alumni, current and former sacristans, and staff will come together for these special evensongs, presenting radical interpolations of General’s rich tradition of chorale worship within the context of LGBTQ+ identity and joy in liturgy in the heart of Chelsea, Manhattan.
