Preacher's Daughter: Q&A with Lesbian Christian Singer-Songwriter Jennifer Knapp

In May, Religion Dispatches published my first interview with former darling of the Christian contemporary music scene, lesbian singer-songwriter Jennifer Knapp. Then over the summer, I got to meet and interview Knapp in person while covering the Wild Goose Festival, an event that celebrated (predominantly Christian) spirituality, justice, and art. We talked a bit about the limitations of Christian music, feminism and sexuality on the same day she filmed the “It Gets Better” video below. I’ll be critiquing some evangelical Christian music later in the series, so I’m very excited to share unpublished parts of our interview with you here today:
