LGBT gift ideas: Queer saint icons, gay Jesus books

Candle with Sergius and Bacchus icon by Robert Lentz

Want to give a Christmas present that expresses your spirituality? Looking for just the right gift for a LGBTQ loved one or ally? You don’t even have to be queer to love the innovative icons at

And for the hard-to-please queer who already has everything, check out the Top 20 Gay Jesus books. Nobody has them all!

I use Trinity icons of same-sex couples and queer saints all year long as part of the LGBT Saints series here at Jesus in Love. They have cards, plaques, T-shirts, mugs, candles, and framed prints with more than 850 images by world-class artists such as Robert Lentz and Lewis Williams. Nine favorites of Jesus in Love readers are shown here.  There are many more, from Joan of Arc to We-Wha of Zuni. Click the titles or click here to visit
