This year’s Boswell lecture at the Pacific School of Religion’s Center for LGBTQ and Gender Studies in Religion will be offering an interpretation of the intersection between sex and the Bible based in queer theory.

The Berkeley-based Protestant Christian seminary puts on the lecture. This year’s iteration, the 17th annual, “Why Do Biblical Interpreters Hate Sex So Much?” will be presented by Luis Menéndez-Antuña, a gay man who’s an assistant professor of New Testament at the Boston University School of Theology.

The lecture, which is free, will be Thursday, April 18, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Pacific time. People interested in watching or listening should register in advance on the CLGS website where they can sign up for a Zoom link.
