Asks why any self-respecting queer would want to have anything to do with spirituality. Answers come from a diverse collection of homosexuals, including Buddhists, Christians, Jews, Neo-Pagans and New-Agers, as well as queers who seek spirituality through drugs, nature, massage, dance, art, and sex. Contributions from 60 religious teachers that address: Do gays have a different perspective on life's mysteries, ecstasies and meaning? Can queerness be a spiritual advantage? What are the connections between sex and spirituality? What implications do spiritual beliefs have for politics, identity, and sexual behavior. Challenges social, religious and sexual orthodoxies.
