I was Quoted in an Article on Transgender People

Religion Dispatches just published an article on the inclusion (or lack their-of) of the Transgender community with Christians as well as gay rights groups, written by author Becky Garrison, in which I was quoted.

You can read it here.

I’m extra excited because Becky will be here in Chicago next week and we’re going to get to hang out and talk.

Here is Becky’s new book and an entertaining recent video interview she did with TheOoze.tv

Much love.

    Hey Andrew :)

    Good stuff all around, I wish I was closer (distance wise) to your organization because I’d attend as much as I could. I don’t know what next year holds for me and coming out to the Gay Pride Parade, but I will let you know this, even if I’m not there I will send you plenty of people!

    I’m seeing and connecting with people in my area who want to help bring about restoration, I kinda bridge the gap in Aurora by plugging into the local chapter of PFLAG, God be praised in all things!

    Have an awesome Labor Day Weekend!
