Trans Thought & Trans Faith!
In a new resource booklet for religious groups, Transgender Welcome, retired gay Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson gives practical advice for affirming congregations and explores the spiritual side of gender issues — for the transitioning and their would-be allies. He presents the Center for American Progress publication in a dialog with trans Baptist Pastor Allyson Robinson. (Lucia Chappelle reports.)
The University of Victoria’s inaugural Trans Studies Chair Dr. Aaron Devor talks about their new academic program — and the world’s largest transgender archives.
Gay Olympian Gus Kenworthy tells TBS TV’s late night talk show host Conan O'Brien why he didn't come out in Sochi.
And in NewsWrap: a poisonous amendment threatens Italy's civil unions bill, U.S. LGBT vets get spousal benefits equity, Britain closes a legal loophole that allowed a deceased gay honeymooner's death certificate in Australia say he was "never married,” a lesbian activist is Guatemala's first out Congressperson, a Russian city fears a "gay fish festival,” and more international LGBT news reported this week by Sarah Sweeney and Wenzel Jones (produced by Steve Pride, written by Greg Gordon).
