Keith Sharpe is an early retired professor of education. He has published widely in books and academic journals in the fields of sociology of education, comparative education, teaching methodology and pedagogy. His book on the teaching of modern foreign languages was market leader for almost a decade. Since his retirement he has studied theology and become active in the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement and the campaigning organisation, Changing Attitude, of which he is a member of the national Board of Trustees. He founded and chairs the Sussex branch of this organisation. He writes a regular column in Gscene, a gay magazine, in which he tries to persuade LGBT readers that while the Church may appear to be an enemy it nevertheless is the bearer of the good news brought by the Jesus Tradition. Past editions can be read at www.gscene.com. It is the success of these articles which provided the impetus for the 'The Gay Gospels'. Now a gay Christian writer and activist, Keith Sharpe lives in London with his long term partner.
