In Memoriam: Donald L. Boisvert

 In Members' Corner, Uncategorized

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Donald Boisvert (1951-2019). Donald’s innovative and critical work on queer religion, sexual pedagogy in religious communities, masculinities and same-sex desire has helped shape these fields of research and will continue to influence and guide our understanding of religious and sexual cultures. Donald was a professor in the Department of Religion at Concordia University, served as Principal of the Montreal Diocesan Theological College, Priest-in-charge of Christ Church Cathedral and clergy associate with St. Matthias’ Anglican Church. Donald was also a warm and generous collaborator, mentor and friend. He will be deeply missed, by all of us and especially by his partner, Gaston. Donations can be made to the Donald L. Boisvert Scholarship for Gay and Lesbian Studies, details can be found here.
