It is now axiomatic to observe that the histories of conservative religion and those of gay liberation are intertwined. But what, exactly, does this mean? What are the religious, historical, ethical, and metaphysical consequences of marriage as the political subject for LGBT equality? What does this particular legal change suggest about the sociology and phenomenology of religion in contemporary America? How do we understand the definition of the religious, and the queer, and their intersection, in our present time and place? Queer Life After DOMA brings together historians, ethicists, theologians, and theorists to evaluate, explore, and discuss these questions.
