Religion and sexuality frequently collide in legislative and popular imaginations and realisations of citizenship status negotiated in an increasingly secular UK context. The supposed decline of religion may be conflated with an increased entitlement to sexual citizenship for LGBTQ groups. Such a conflation sidelines the citizenship possibilities and realities negotiated by queer religious youth in imagining future forms of employment and family formations. This chapter explores the construction of vocational and familial futures amongst queer identifying religious youth.
