Jesus in Love serves gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people who have spiritual interests, and our allies. We promote queer spirituality, books and arts.

Artists

Jesus in Love values artists who create lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and queer spiritual and religious images.  Their art is needed now because conservatives are using religious rhetoric to justify discrimination against queer people.  Click for artist profiles by Kittredge Cherry at the Jesus in Love Blog.  This list is a work in progress.
