The relationship between transgender people and religious institutions
Note from GLAAD
A great reflection on how transgender people struggle to find a worshiping home and worshiping communities struggle to understand the reality of transgender people.
After months of searching and bouncing from church-to-church Clarissa finally found a spiritual home. She found a religious community that accepted her for who she was. For Clarissa, finding a church home was not about worship style, preaching, social activism or even theological stances on progressive issues such as the environment or acceptance of homosexuals. For Clarissa it was about being accepted as a woman.
