8/10/2020

Performative Allyship and LGBTQI+ People in the Church   This is kind of one of the “terms” or “new words” for 2020: performative allyship.   Definition and description of performative allyship: First, allies are helpful.

Happy Non-Binary Gender People Day! Actually, Non-Binary Gender People Day was yesterday, July 14, 2020, which is the day I began working on this blog posting. Like so many other birthdays and anniversaries in life, I am belated in this celebration. Nevertheless: Happy Non-Binary Gender People Day!
