Jennifer Miracle-Best has a passion for helping people to understand the intricacies of sexual and gender identity. Although some of her knowledge came from her studies at Central Michigan University and her experience as a member of CMU’s Office of Gay & Lesbian Programs speakers bureau and the Director of the LGBT Resource Center at The University of Georgia, most of her wisdom came from her personal journey to find her personal truth. Her time at the University of Georgia, and perhaps even more so, her relationship with her husband, Ethan, has broadened her perspective on gender and caused her to challenge even the most basic, mundane, constructions of gender. It is through these experiences, as well as the experiences of her own gender expression and the assumptions people make about her based on it, that she has arrived at this radical, game-changer idea about how to free the world from gender. These days she spends her time promoting her book "Divinely Queer: My Journey to Spirituality Through Sexuality" and spreading the good word that despite the messages that our society perpetuates about God and religion, that our queerness is absolutely Divine.
