Join the Beacon Hill Friends House for a screening of the film version of Peterson Toscano’s play “Transfigurations”.
Peterson Toscano has shaken up Bible academics and received high praise for his ground-breaking, genre-bending, gender blending Bible scholarship. By unearthing the stories of gender-variant people in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, “Transfigurations” deepens well-known (and lesser-known) Bible stories and presents an array of Bible characters with an array of genders.
While today he is known for comic storytelling that addresses climate change, Peterson is a recognized scholar who has highlighted gender variance in the Bible. His performance lectures have garnered much attention and praise from Bible scholars. He has presented “Transfigurations–Transgressing Gender in the Bible” at academic conferences, seminaries, universities, places of worship, and drag bars.
