7 Minutes in Heaven

7 Minutes in Heaven

by Erin Fairchild

Cait and Erin worked together to create '7 Minutes in Heaven,' a zine of their individual tales of growing up queer in the Christian church. Cait talks about her time at camp as a kid, trying to love the lord, but finding out her attraction to girls made her different. Erin went to winter camp, an equally traumatizing place where she discovered that she didn't really believe in speaking in tongues, but pretended to anyway. They both examine why they were so drawn to Christianity, and why they eventually left the church. This one is equal parts funny and sad. They claim that even though they still carry some of the same issues, they're a lot less emo about it now.
