Initial reporting from several media outlets misgendered a transgender woman who was killed by National Security Aagency police while allegedly attempting to drive an SUV through a restricted entrance to the NSA campus in Fort Meade, MD.
For the first time, two openly transgender ministers are scheduled to preach at Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Emory's LGBT student organization Sacred Worth organized a week of education, entitled “Trans*forming Christianity.”
