A Mention in Victorian Parliament

LC

Heaven Bent was mentioned in the Victorian Legislative Council yesterday by Ms Jaala Pullford MP.

From the Hansard:

Ms PULFORD (Western Victoria) — I would like to congratulate Luke Gahan and Tiffany Jones on the recent launch of their book, Heaven Bent — Australian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Experiences of Faith, Religion and Spirituality. This fine collection of essays brings together academic, theological, activist, religious and political perspectives from a great variety of backgrounds — orthodox, Catholic and Protestant Christian, Islamic, Jewish, Buddhist, pagan and atheist. The book is a great contribution to the ongoing struggle of members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex community for equal rights in our society, and the editors are to be commended for the contribution this work will make to this endeavour.
