Cover of Dr. Sharpe's "The Gay Gospels" (detail)

British author Dr. Keith Sharpe discusses and signs his book The Gay Gospels: Good News for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered People. In his new book, Dr. Sharpe discusses his view that there is no biblical condemnation of homosexuality and shows how the usually cited texts demonizing gay people are incorrect. He further argues that both the Old and New Testaments provide references of gay lives, identities, and relationships.

This event is presented by the Chicago Public Library’s Pride Heritage Committee.
