The authors show not only that African Christian traditions harbour strong potential for countering conservative anti-LGBTI+ dynamics; but also that this potential has already begun to be realised by various thinkers, activists and movements across the continent. Their ten case studies document how leading African writers are reimagining Christian thought; how several Christian-inspired groups are transforming religious practice; and how African cultural production creatively appropriates Christian beliefs and symbols. In short, the book explores Christianity as a major resource for a liberating imagination and politics of sexuality and social justice in Africa today.
