The Crossing and Transcriptions are co-hosting another open mic night – and it’s also TOMORROW! This is part of Transgender Faith Action Week, the centerpiece of the faith campaign for the Transgender Equal Rights Bill. ICTE and its partners MTPC, Keshet and MassEquality thank The Crossing and Transcriptions for co-organizing this special event, and wish all involved an enjoyable and meaningful evening.
The Crossing is a faith community at the Cathedral Church of Saint Paul (Episcopal; http://www.thecrossingboston.org/). Transcriptions is Boston’s trans and queer open mic (http://transcriptionsboston.com/).
