Can LGBT people be religious? Find out on this edition of A Public Affair!
On Monday February 3rd our host John Quinlan was joined by Dr. Rizi Timane an acclaimed Nigerian-born transgender minister to discuss his latest book, “An Unspoken Compromise” and Timane’s journey to self-discovery.
“For centuries, misguided individuals and indeed entire societies have used religious texts to condemn and persecute minorities and anyone perceived as “different,” and as a transgendered minister and a person of color, Rizi has experienced such discrimination and hatred firsthand. In An Uncommon Compromise-A Spiritual Guide for LGBT People of Faith, he shares the struggles he’s gone through since childhood to find his own identity and his place in the world-and within his parents’ strict Christian religion.”- CreateSpace
