Building Up the Body: Trans People and the Growth of the Church
This workshop invites trans people to claim their identities and embodiments as part of an ongoing process of spiritual growth, envisions churches as places to cultivate that process, and sees the full participation of trans people in the life of the Church as a sign of its commitment to its own process of growth. Open to all participants.
The Rev. Dr. Cameron Partridge is an Episcopal priest and interim Chaplain at Harvard University. He specializes in the study of religion as related to sex, gender and sexuality.
