Transgender Resolution --> Episcopal Church
Two of my colleagues on the Interfaith Coalition for Transgender Equality (ICTE) are Episcopal priests -- Reverends Cameron Partridge and Christopher Fike. With Reverend Canon Ed Rodman, they wrote and submitted a resolution in support of trans civil rights and of adding gender identity and expression to the National Episcopal Church non-discrimination canon. This weekend, the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts voted in a landslide to support the resolution. So, the diocese has now petitioned the General Convention of the Episcopal Church to add that language.
Cameron is also a founding member of TransEpiscopal – for his post about the resolution on the TE blog, including the full text of the resolution, click here. For his similar oon the ICTE blog, click here.
This is particularly meaningful for me, as I am Episcopalian on my late mother’s side. Mazel tov!!
