Current class is full. Please contact Julia Mogilev at learningjourney@uufrc.org if you are interested in taking it in the future. 

 

This course is for everyone from novices on trans identity to those with decades of life experience. Rather than simply offering a “trans 101,” this class pushes participants to the next level of congregational welcome, relationship-building, and skills-building. It counters mainstream narratives about who trans people are; supports understanding of non-binary identities (such as genderqueer, agender, and Two-Spirit); and employs a deeply intersectional approach.

Topics include: Introduction to Beloved Community, Welcome as a Spiritual Practice. Gender and Our Faith Community, Unpacking the Gender Binary, Trans Experience and Spirituality, The Role of Culture in Trans Exclusion, Creating Culture Shift.

This is a course developed by Transforming Hearts. Susie Idzik will host the course and lead discussions.
