"Putting the T First"

March 6, 2019

Dear Members and Friends,

This week the UU World magazine published an article that has broken covenant with trans people and silenced their voices. Rather than attempting to summarize the article or the response to it, as a cis-gender ally, I encourage you to read the public statement from TRUUsT, trans religious professional Unitarian Universalists Together. The response is available here. The statement includes links to the original UU World article and other resources in this ongoing and painful conversation.

If you have questions or concerns, I encourage you to contact me. And please mark your calendars for Sunday, May 5, when the Reading LGBTQ Center will lead our church community in a Trans/Non-Binary/Gender Workshop, followed by a discussion. More information about the workshop is forthcoming.

Yours in faith,

Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees
