Support LGBTQ spirituality with a year-end donation for my work at Q Spirit and the Jesus in Love blog and newsletter .

Donations in December help pay expenses all year long. Jesus in Love / Q Spirit is a reader-supported project for LGBTQ spirituality. I rely on reader contributions to keep my blog and newsletter going. Please do your part.

Your contribution brings hope, stands up for artistic and religious freedom, and liberates people to experience the divine in new ways. Please help foster love for all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

“Some of our best resources, that push the edges and make us re-evaluate, do not have a regular source of funding. This one is well worth your donation,” says contributor Nancy Radclyffe.

A major accomplishment this year was moving the blog to . The new website makes my work much more accessible through mobile devices, social media and search engines.

Moving the blog was a huge effort, but it was worth it because traffic almost doubled to 95,000 annual sessions this year. More people also signed up for the Jesus in Love Newsletter , where the mailing list grew by 11 percent to 1,456 subscribers.

I am determined to keep on communicating the spiritual value of LGBTQ lives as expressed through religion, history, art, saints, books and queer visions of Christ .

Since I launched in 2005, it has grown to include the popular Jesus in Love blog and e-newsletter , the website and the Spanish-language Santos Queer .

Q Spirit means queer spirituality. It also stands for quality and questioning spiritual assumptions. Q Spirit and Jesus in Love are my gift to the world.

Readers call it inspiring, informative and “always fabulous.” Listen to their voices:

“Kittredge Cherry is a champion of the imagination, particularly through her resources on lgbtq art in liturgy.”
— Louie Clay

“This is such important work. Please continue to inspire us. As an out and proud Gay Interfaith and Interspiritual Minister, I turn to the Jesus In Love Newsletter often for inspiration and hope.”
–Christopher Portelli

“Best home-grown newsletter on LGBTQ Spirituality and the Arts going. I’m always glad to help Kittredge Cherry in her annual campaign! It’s great stuff! And it tells the world, “We’re here, we’re queer, and we also happen to be serious Christians.”
— Maria Evans

“Is there no area of the LGBTQ community that is left unexamined by genius of Kittredge Cherry? Her insight, care, and deep concern brings forth… the deep interior dimension of spirit and past and present cultural and artistic expressions within and outside of society’s institutions. For a jolt of inspiration and for the joy of being gay I often turn to Kittredge.”
— Charles Wm Wells

I am passionately committed to Jesus in Love / Q Spirit because it grew out of my own personal journey as a lesbian Christian.

Your gift helps cover the annual budget for the whole year, including Internet access, web design and hosting, computer, bank fees and office supplies.

Jesus in Love is not a non-profit organization, so your gifts to Kittredge Cherry for Jesus in Love and Q Spirit are not tax deductible.

Many thanks to EVERYONE who has given their time, talent and resources this year!  Happy New Year!
