When God Was a Woman is part of my Lost in Translation Series where I question and dialogue with the writers of the three Holy Books--the Old and New Testament and the Qur'an--regarding war, women, and homosexuality.

My composite of photographic images originates at the Gay Parade in San Francisco and at the Aids Quilt display in Washington D.C. The scriptures speak of love, as well as hate, bias and prejudice. The debate and dialogue includes preachers reading Leviticus which state that a homosexual lifestyle is an "abomination."
