A survey of trans UU was recently conducted which reported that only 44% of trans people felt spiritually connected and nourished at their congregation, 72% did not feel that their congregation is fully inclusive of them and 42% regularly experience trans-related marginalization in Unitarian Universalist spaces. We are failing to live into our ideals. Let’s learn to do this better.
Transforming Hearts Collective, a group of trans UU religious leaders, have put together this class which includes sessions on ‘welcome as a spiritual practice,’ ‘unpacking the gender binary,’ and ‘trans experience and spirituality.’ The class will include video lectures by the creators of the program, conversation with other People’s people facilitated by Rev. Rachel, and the possibility to participate in video chats with the program creators and people from all over who have participated in this class. We will meet on the first Wednesdays of the month from 7-9pm, beginning May 1st in Room 19. The class will meet monthly for six months.
