This resource, "Breaking Open Genesis 1: The Gender of God & Creation", is a short booklet that takes another look at Genesis 1, exploring the expansiveness of God's gender and in turn, the vast possibilities for human gender as beings formed in the image of the Divine.


Here we challenge the ways that the Creation story in Genesis 1 has been used to deny the equality and sacred worth of Women, Intersex People, and Trans and gender diverse peoples based in the biblical text. Through discussion questions and accessible language, we've designed this resource to support you and your communities in building a justice-centered relationship to faith and religion, founded on the principle of promoting abundant life for all people.

The Breaking Open Series is a compilation of short resources created to provide guidance on challenging scriptural passages and interpretations most often used in ways that harm LGBTQI people and other marginalized communities.
