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.
