Intimate Conviction: Examining the Church and Anti-Sodomy Laws across the Commonwealth

In October 2017, The Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network and Anglicans for Decriminalization hosted a two-day conference examining the role of the Church in anti-sodomy laws across the Commonwealth. The conference, Intimate Conviction, was a groundbreaking gathering that brought together activists, church officials, and politicians from around the world for an inspiring discussion.

Now, to mark the one-year anniversary of this event, we are pleased to offer this edited volume containing many of the presentations from this conference. We hope this will be a valuable resource for anyone looking for tools to understand how these laws came to be and what role the Church can still play.
