Out in Season
Discover fresh perspectives about the seasons of the Church Year from a wide-range of transgender experiences. How does Christmas or Ash Wednesday or Easter touch the hearts of trans people of faith? How does trans experience transform traditional celebrations?
Through the Church Year, Christians – as individuals and communities of faith – remember and celebrate God’s holy time of healing, freeing and reconciling. Year after year, Christians journey from the longings of Advent, the joy of Christmas and the depths of Lent to the good news of Easter hope. Here we explore that journey with transgender sisters and brothers.
Included here are stories and reflections by eleven transgender laity and clergy. Some of the writers identify as trans men, others as trans women and others resist binary categories and gender categories, prefering to identify as gender queer. Together, prayerfully and imaginatively, they listened to their hearts and now let you in on what these days and seasons mean to them.
Allow God to move through them. Let these stories heal and challenge you – bringing light to your own heart, reflections, sermons or prayers. Be trans-formed.
