Hi there. I’m Enrique Cintrón and I use they/them/theirs pronouns. I’m a queer, Puerto Rican, nonbinary writer, spiritual director, podcaster and self-described “themologian”, that is, I theologize from a nonbinary perspective at the intersections of race, queerness, and faith.
I was baptized and raised Roman Catholic, but left the church during my teenage years in search of a faith home that would accept me exactly as I was. After more than a decade of spiritual exploration, I was received into the Episcopal Church in October 2016, where I am currently discerning a call to ordained ministry as a priest.
For me, deep listening is a powerful spiritual practice. As a spiritual director trained through Still Harbor, I offer spiritual accompaniment to others as a way to walk with clients on their journeys with the Divine. Storytelling is also a spiritual practice that I treasure immensely, and an expression of that is my podcast, Fruits of the Spirit, a show sharing and celebrating the faith journeys of queer and trans people of color.
Previously, I have served as a co-organizer of the Sabbath Solidarity Project, an initiative that organized monthly ‘sabbath experiences’ for people of color, providing yoga, massage, and other wellness services at no cost, along with food and fellowship, in Philadelphia. The work of creating sabbath moments for myself and others remains highly important to me as a form of resistance to capitalist “grind culture”. I also work as a freelance social media manager and website designer, primarily with churches and nonprofits.
In my spare time, I enjoy watercolor painting, cooking, playing video games, and buying far too many books than I have room for on my shelves. You can follow me on Twitter

and Earth & Altar
Here’s some podcast episodes that I’ve done with friends and colleagues:
