We have a new contributor here at Bilerico!

The Reverend Irene Monroe will now be blogging regularly here. You might already be familiar with her writing for The Advocate or In Newsweekly. She's a columnist who focuses on issues of sexuality, homophobia, and religion, as well as a fellow and doctoral candidate at Harvard Divinity School. She says:

By reporting religion in the news I aim to highlight how religious intolerance and fundamentalism not only shatters the goal of American democracy, but also aids in perpetuating other forms of oppression such as racism, sexism, classism and anti-Semitism.

Please give the Reverend a big welcome and expect her first post later today! You can check out her website and lots of her writing here.
