Open Bible Podcast

#01 - In the Beginning God Made… Intersex? w/ Megan DeFranza and Geoffrey Dorsey

October 16, 2019

In our premiere episode, we ask questions about the nature of God’s original creation and how it informs how we think about the world around us today. Does Genesis present a strictly binary view of gender, or are there other ways to approach the text? Our guests include a Christian who has had unique personal experiences with gender and faith, and a theologian who has focused on intersex people and theology.

What questions do you have around LGBTQ people and Christian faith? Are there topics you'd love for us to explore, or questions you want answered? We'd love to hear from you. Send us a message on our website at, or hit us up on instagram or twitter - we are @openbiblepod.


We would love to meet you in person, and we'll be at the Reformation Project's conference in Seattle on November 7 - 9. If you are there, please come say hi! More info at
