Gender and the Bible

There is far too much negative information to people regarding Biblical Verses and gender. This information results in huge amounts of guilt, sorrow, shame, and self-harm. We will explore traditionally misunderstood Biblical Verses with traditional and modern commentaries. This will paint these verses in a new light, allowing people grappling with gender to understand Western religious traditions in a way which supports their gender expression. By using classical texts, we will show that you can be both religious and trans*.
