Spirituality and Trans Identities
Some sense of spirituality has been intrinsic in many of our lives, either in our childhood upbringing, or as a path we are currently pursuing. Others may feel that our trans identities preclude us from engaging in organized spirituality or that our identities are in conflict with moral laws, making us unwelcome in some places of worship. Have you left behind an expression of faith that was once very important to you? Do you continue to be part of a congregation where others are unaware of your trans identity? Many of us have embraced alternative beliefs or developed our own sense of spirituality that serves us in a more holistic way. Have you worked within a religious community to create a more inclusive environment? How successful were you? How does your spirituality intersect with your work for social change? Let’s share our experiences of our search for fulfillment.
