About the trans experience
If you’d like to learn more about what it means to be transgender, I refer you to this excellent video, Transgender Basics, produced by the Gender Identity Project of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community Center in New York, NY. It’s clear, concise, non-political, and very respectful of people all across the spectrum of identities. Click on the image below to be taken to the Transgender Basics page where you can watch the video, or click here to watch it in higher resolution at Google Videos.
For those interested in going a little deeper, I would recommend ReligionLink’s page of transgender-related resources. ReligionLink is “a resource to help print and broadcast journalists when they encounter religion in stories about government, politics, education, social services, science and other areas of public life.”
Finally, I would be remiss if I failed to direct you to my good friend Chris Paige’s TransFaithOnline site, a clearinghouse for information on spirituality for the transgender community.
