Humanitou: Conversations of Humanness + Creativity
25: Amanda E.K., writer and filmmaker, on purity culture and rapture anxiety, religious trauma syndrome and coming into her own as an atheist queer polyamorous nonbinary woman
Amanda E.K. is a writer and filmmaker, the editor-in-chief and publisher of Suspect Press, a memoirist about purity culture and an exvangelical. In this conversation, Amanda talks about her fundamentalist evangelical upbringing, purity culture, rapture anxiety and religious trauma syndrome. We also talk about when she started to question the faith, and about eventually coming into her own truths as an atheist and a self-described "queer polyamorous nonbinary womxn" in a loving heterosexual marriage. Among other things, like Allen Ginsberg's "Howl" and Amanda's forthcoming memoir. More at humanitou.com.
