My name is Patrick S. Cheng (鄭書祥), and I'm a seminary professor, theologian, attorney, and ordained minister.
I teach at the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, MA, and I contribute to the Religion and the Gay Voices sections of the Huffington Post.
I am the author of Radical Love: An Introduction to Queer Theology (2011), an accessible introduction to queer theology.
I'm also the author of From Sin to Amazing Grace: Discovering the Queer Christ (2012), which rethinks the doctrines of sin and grace for LGBT people and our allies today.
My newest book is Rainbow Theology: Bridging Race, Sexuality, and Spirit (2013). It is the first book-length treatment of theologies by LGBT people of color.
I have delivered a number of lectures across the country, including the Zerby Lecture at Bates College, the Castañeda Lecture at Chicago Theological Seminary, and the Boswell Lecture at the Pacific School of Religion.
Since 2012, I have served on the Committee on the Status of LGBTIQ Persons in the Profession of the American Academy of Religion.
