Ajj, Pat the Bunny, La Dispute, mewithoutYou, Mount Eerie, Philip Glass, Nils Frahm, Steve Reich, Sigur Rós, Cavetown, She/Her/Hers, Seth Martin (and Seth Martin and the Menders), theillalogicalspoon, Donut Worry

Most of those should be on major platforms, but some might only be on bandcamp

Seems cool! Does it draw on Caputo?
I'd love to read it if that's a possibility

Deconstruction is mostly attributed to Derrida.

For a good intro read "Deconstruction in a Nutshell: A Conversation with Jacques Derrida"
It's edited by John Caputo who is a Derrida scholar that focuses on the religious nature of Derrida. Caputo has a weak theology thing that's really good.

I saw them live this summer. I enjoy them a lot.

Have you listened to theillalogicalspoon and or Seth Martin? (Seth Martin and the menders, and his solo stuff, is one of my favorite artists)


I'm familiar with Jacob Collier and have enjoyed some of his microtonal stuff, but I don't particularly listen to him a lot.
I am more in to Terry Riley, Nils Frahm, and Steve Reich. Also Baths is cool

Question about gender dysphoria

church trauma, deconstruction 

Glad you got them! Sorry for the delay...I put two zeroes instead of two ones ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I sent them off! Let me know if you have any problems!


Also consider 'indecent theology' and 'the queer god' by Marcella Althaus-Reid. These two are more academic than Goss. They are steeped in liberation theology.
One particular focus is on how queer relationships are beautiful even if they don't fit in the heterosexual or monogamous frame Christian's are familiar with.

If you're interested here is a shorter introduction to her thought:


I know a few

'Queering Christ: Beyond Jesus Acted Up' by Robert Goss rocked my world. It deals with theology and tells his story as a gay Jesuit priest. He doesn't talk much about trans folks but he at the very least recognizes and afirms them. Overall he does a good job of challenging heteronormativity. His argument about how queer relationships are procreative is incredible.

I don't know if I could pick just one...

I read 'Jesus For President' and 'Velvet Elvis' is when I was 14-15 and that started a lot for me.

If I had to pick one it would be 'Queering Christ: Beyond Jesus Acted Up' by Robert Goss. That book entirely shifted how I viewed sexuality and gender.

Also 'God of the Oppressed by James Cone, and along with that 'Black Skin, White Masks' by Frantz Fannon.

Also pretty much any writing by Deleuze.
