“Coming Out Atheist” Special Event Featuring Greta Christina (Sep. Regis. Req'd)

The Center for Inquiry–DC presents a special summer fund-raising event featuring Greta Christina, author of the newly released Coming Out Atheist: How to Do It, How to Help Each Other, and Why?  We are very pleased to host the dinner in the Langston Room of Busboys and Poets, one of DC's premier cultural venues. Registration includes a full dinner and open bar.

Coming out as an atheist is a powerful, liberating act. It makes life better for you, for other atheists, and for the world. But telling people you’re an atheist can be risky. What are the best ways to do it? And how can we help each other take this step?

In her compassionate, friendly, down-to-earth how-to guide, popular author of Why Are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Things That Piss Off the Godlessand blogger Greta Christina, offers concrete strategies and guiding philosophies for coming out as an atheist. Based on hundreds of coming-out stories, her latest book Coming Out Atheist offers a map of the territory atheists are likely to encounter and ideas on how to pick the path that’s best for you.

Her accessible, empathetic guide reflects a wide range of coming-out experiences. 


Greta Christina has been writing professionally since 1989, on topics including atheism, sexuality and sex-positivity, LGBT issues, politics, culture, and whatever crosses her mind. She is a columnist for Free Inquiryand The Humanist magazines as well as the author of Why Are You Atheists So Angry? and Bending.
