Garry Rutter is a member of St Luke’s Church, Holloway and a long-term Greenbelter. In fact, he was a co-host on the festival’s first ever podcast series, way back in 2009. He’s a modest and unassuming contributor to The Book of Queer Prophets and we love this little short he’s filmed to share his pride at being involved and seeing his work published. Go Garry.

When Ruth Hunt spoke at #gb15 she was the CEO of Stonewall. Her talk was forthright and fascinating in equal measure. She was described back then (by the Independent) as ‘the eighth most influential LGBT person in Britain’. Frankly those other seven must have been pretty hot stuff.
Today we’re sharing her brilliant talk from that year about the church and its relationships with the LGBT community - the link is below.
A practising Catholic, Ruth has also now curated a wonderful new project, ‘The Book of Queer Prophets’. It’s a series of chapters from contributors who’ve wrestled with reconciling their sexuality and identities with the religious traditions they grew up in.
It contains chapters from much-loved Greenbelt speakers like Pádraig Ó Tuama, Winnie Varghese, John Bell, Tamsin Omond, Rachel Mann and Mpho Tutu van Furth – plus an array of amazing writers, including Jeanette Winterson, writing openly and honestly about their experiences of sexuality and religion. There’s also an afterword from Kate Bottley.
It’s edited for Harper Collins by Greenbelter Grace Pengelly and one of the chapters is written by Greenbelter Garry Rutter. This is an important book. It also feels like a very Greenbelt book, through and through. We’d urge you to read it.

May Jennifer this May be useful to you after our recent conversations.
Thanks for this Esther. Since that convo perhaps you could shed a bit of light on the passage from 1 corinthians 6 :9-11. Have to say it appears quite clear what it says. Confused. Com
