Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the interconnectedness between queer youth and religious identity. It focuses on the maps produced by young people participating in the project and visual methods as a way of re-engaging, representing and even resisting identities and practices based on sexuality and religion. In a changing socio-political climate, the chapter explores if, where, why and when these identities become more or less prominent. Under what circumstances are (dis)identifications and (dis)associations produced (in more or less religious/sexual spaces)? The chapter situates the methods of 'queer productions' as an occupation involving the research-researcher-researched. A mix of qualitative techniques (interviews, maps and diaries) allowed rich insights into the everyday lives, practices and identities of queer religious youth: these techniques 'make space' to account for young people's experience of being in, or absent from, religious and sexualized spaces.

Keywords: queer productions; queer youth; religious identity; sexualized spaces
