This just in from my colleague Jamez Terry, who is one of the panelists:
"Common Hearth: Understanding Transgender Identity, Practicing Radical Hospitality
Wednesday, February 15, 7:30pm in the Parish Hall
This interactive panel discussion will explore transgender identities and experiences, particularly in relation to faith and church community. Together we will consider ways that First Parish can be more welcoming and inclusive of the trans people in our midst. Panelists include Red Durkin, a Brooklyn-based trans advocate and widely acclaimed comedienne; Alex Kapitan, Congregational Justice Administrator for LGBT Ministries at the Unitarian Universalist Association; and Jamez Terry, founder and organizer of the nationally touring Tranny Roadshow. This all-star group brings a wealth of experience and perspective to share. Don't miss this opportunity to grow more fully into our identity as radical welcomers! Childcare is available by advance request to firstname.lastname@example.org."
