Gay and Lesbian Christmas ornaments by Kittredge Cherry

Gay and lesbian Nativity scenes are available on Christmas cards and ornaments now at the Q Spirit / Jesus in Love Store.

What if the child of God was born to a same-sex couple? Because, after all, LOVE makes a family, including the Holy Family. The images are true to the spirit of Christmas: God’s child conceived in an extraordinary way.

Right-wing religious conservatives have attacked these queer cards and ornaments, so you know that they must be good! Visit Q Spirit’s online store shop to see the various designs.

Queer Nativity - Lesbian Nativity with Dog from the Love Makes a Holy Family series by Kittredge Cherry

The images show two Marys and two Josephs at the manger with the baby Jesus — like putting two brides or two grooms on top of a wedding cake! Everyone should be able to see themselves in the Christmas story, including the growing number of LGBTQ parents and their children.

All images are from the “Love Makes a Holy Family” series by Kittredge Cherry, founder and publisher of Q Spirit / Jesus in Love. Click for news reports on the controversy stirred by her Nativity scenes:

For more about how and why I made these the queer manger scenes, see my essay “Queer Nativity scenes show love makes a family.”

I hope you enjoy shopping at the Q Spirit / Jesus in Love Store!
