Liam and Peterson welcome Diamond Stylz to the podcast. She unpacks and repackages the Book of Ruth, while she relentlessly highlights the patriarchy that fuels the narrative.
Diamond Stylz is one of the premier voices among the millennial black trans community. Currently, Diamond is the Executive Director of Black Trans Women Inc, a national non-profit that is led by Black trans women focused on social advocacy, economic equity and building strong leadership among Black trans women.
Diamond is the host and producer of Marsha’s Plate, a weekly podcast that archives and centers the trans social justice movements and pro-black feminist culture. Diamond also contributed an essay the the anthology OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance.
Liam shares the “Other Text,” the poem, Gender, by Dr. Joy Ladin from her collection of poems entitled Impersonation. Dr. Ladin was a guest on Bible Bash and spoke about the story of Jonah as a metaphor for her own life.
In each episode of Bible Bash Podcast, Peterson, cisgender gay Bible scholar and co-host, Liam Michael Hooper, a trans Bible scholar, take turns presenting the text. They then discuss. In addition, each episode they present another text, a non-Biblical text of note–religious or secular–that may or may not correspond to the Bible text.
Bible Bash Podcast is a project of Ministries Beyond Welcome.
Our theme song is Playbill by The Jellyrox. It is available on iTunes, Spotify, or through Rock Candy Recordings
