TransFaith’s Being Brave Together retreats - #5 in Boston

TransFaith -- where I'm a founding National Councilmember -- launched our Being Brave Together model last year (2016), and the centerpiece is our Being Brave Together (BBT) retreats for trans* and allied spiritual/cultural workers in cities / regions around the country.  We’ve done them in Miami once (last February), Philly twice (last April and June), and Baltimore (last December), and I’ve co-facilitated all four (and blogged about it briefly here).

Our fifth and latest BBT retreat was today in Boston, at the Second Church in Newton UCC (United Church of Christ), and it was the best one yet – which is really saying something! Todah rabah, many thanks!! I co-facilitated with Louis Mitchell (also a TF staff member), in partnership with other TF staff and a local planning committee, and we had a dozen participants.

And we are planning them in several other cities for this year and next, and want to plan them in more.  And for that we need local hosts and planning committees, not to mention participants.  So please connect with us if you haven’t already -- transfaithonline.org/connect/being_brave_together/.  We have many other ways to connect, engage and gather as well, online and off.

This also enabled me to visit Boston for the first time since I moved here (three years ago, after being there since birth in 1976) – I’m sorry I didn’t get to tell or see more people, but hopefully it won’t be too long before the next time, and I can bring my partner Julia.

Trans United's first Organizing Call

Tonight was Trans United's first Organizing Call, and I was there, along with close to 100 of my closest colleagues, and it was quite a thing -- and it’s not too late to get involved.

"Trans United Fund is committed to building the political power of trans and gender expansive communities and our allies to advocate for trans equality."

Field trip to The Frederick Center

Tonight Julia and I visited The Frederick Center’s Trans and Gender Non-Binary Community Group for the first time, and shared good pizza, soda, and conversation about many aspects of moving forward together as a community.  Thank you for inviting and having us! We continue to be inspired by you as we create the MoCo Pride Center. And it was certainly an unusually good way to spend Erev Inauguration (oy vey!!).

"This monthly TFC group is open to all Trans and Gender Non-Conforming adults (ages 18+ only). We provide a safe space to discuss issues of interest – including identity, coming out, transition – to support one another in gender exploration, to build connections and socialize with one another. Meeting topics and activities will largely be determined by group interest. We will commit to Respect, Direct Communication, Gentleness, Exploration, and Confidentiality.  Significant others welcome."
