Inaugural lecture Adriaan van Klinken: Reimagining Christianity and Sexual Diversity in Africa

On 28 October 2021, Adriaan van Klinken delivered his inaugural lecture as Professor of Religion and African Studies at the University of Leeds. In this lecture, loosely based on his recently-published book co-authored with Professor Ezra Chitando, Reimagining Christianity and Sexual Diversity in Africa, he explored how African thinkers, writers, activists, and artists contribute to the re-imagination of sexuality and Christianity in contemporary Africa, and how they debunk monolithic narratives of “African homophobia” and “religious homophobia”, thus opening up queer African futures.
