This book features eighteen queer (LGBTQI+) Christians (from Hong Kong, Taiwan and China) "reclaiming" the Bible by creative and constructive interpretation from their own perspectives. By affirming queer experience, they not only liberate themselves from scriptures that are traditionally oppressive to LGBTQI+ people, but also liberate the Bible from homophobia, transphobia, oppression, misogyny,  and hetero/binary gender system.

  In contemporary biblical interpretation, we can no longer ignore interpretations from the perspectives of marginalized, feminist, womanist, black, gay and lesbian, postcolonial, Asian, African Diaspora, in other words, interpreting the Bible is no longer dominated by a particular group of people traditionally white heterosexual males. For the past thirty years, queer theologies and queer biblical interpretation have gradually come of age as a result of many courageous lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex people who come out to challenge the essentialist notions of sex, gender identity and sexuality.

  The development of queer theologies and queer biblical interpretation in the context of Hong Kong is in existence for less than ten years, and since 2014 to now, LGBTQI theologians, biblical scholars  and pastors from Hong Kong, Taiwan and China met together to explore theology and interpret the Bible from their own queer experiences. As a result of the collaboration between these three regions, this book comprises of eighteen articles on queer interpretation of the Bible in Asian Chinese contexts published in Chinese. In these articles, the authors engage in a proactive approach with issues such as family diversity, intersectionality, polyamory,  intersex in the Creation Story, sex workers and queer sexual ethics.
