the queer god

"The Queer God" is a creative community and research project led by Rodney Simpson (IG: @eatpraydance_) and Black the Creator. Our vision is to create spaces that honor and celebrate the multitudes of Black queer and trans experiences; spaces for healing, restoration and liberation that are grounded in ancestral creative and spiritual practices of the African diaspora.

We are dreaming up work that aims to:

1) Address religious trauma and abuse by uplifting and centering the spiritual and healing needs of Black LGBTQIA+ people and communities. 

 

2) Decolonize expressive arts therapy theory and practice in ways that center, amplify and demystify what it means & looks like for queer/trans people of African descent to heal.  To add to much-needed research in the field of Expressive Therapies.

 

3) Cultivate a healing model and community space that incorporates creative and spiritual praxis drawn from historical and present-day wisdom of the queer Afro-Indigenous diaspora.
