About this Course

The movement for transgender rights is a hot topic for the past few years, with the passing of HB2, which limited the availability of safe bathrooms for transgender North Carolinians, and Gavin Grimm’s struggle to use the boys bathroom in his school. 

Transfaith's Transgender Liberation series is designed to explore and expand the conversation about transgender rights from inclusion to justice to liberation, by engaging the work of transgender spiritual/cultural workers who working at the forefront of those lived realities.

Note: For a more gentle and relational entry point, please explore our Transfaith for Allies series
