Following an appearance at Greenbelt, Liz will be undertaking a short tour of the UK - taking in Brighton, London, Leicester and Oxford. She'll join Alison Webster to talk queer virtue and the good news that LGBTQ people – rather than needing to be redeemed by the Christian faith – have a powerful message for the churches. Alison is the author of Found Wanting: Women, Christianity and Sexuality; her new book Found Out: transgressive faith and sexuality is published in September 2017.
