“We are born, first, within the great Divine Imaginary, the grove-ground of being where all the distinctiveness and vitality of life originates and comes into existence—a vision of continual unfolding; seeded in freedom to become, rooted in diverse particularity bursting forth through us in curious and complex living landscapes; manifested in bodies burgeoning with selfhood, longing to be expressed and actualized.”
(from, Trans-Forming Proclamation: A Transgender Theology of Daring Existence; 2020, OtherWise Engaged Publishing)
Liam M. Hooper, M.Div., is an author, gender theorist, theological activist, trans activist-advocate, educator, podcaster, public-speaker, and freelance content writer.
He believes strongly in the power of stories to speak above the noise and chatter of our differences, leading and inspiring us to a deeper appreciation of human particularity and relationality.
Liam is available to provide a wide range of lectures/seminars and workshops on topics related to: Sex/Sexuality and Gender Identity; Gender Identity, Sexuality, and Faith Reclamation, Trans and LGBTQ Justice/Equity Issues; Identity Formation and Identity as Resistance; as well as topics related to addressing power dynamics/intersectional justice and more through the lenses of gender, sex, and sexuality justice. He is also available to speak with faith communities/leaders, interfaith groups, as well as private secular and civic groups. No march, rally, or event is too small.
On occasion, Dodi, the family terrier (above), and Liam’s spouse, Diana, travel with him—especially, when doing this work involves going to new and interesting places.
