This past weekend, November 5th and 6th, 2010, a group of more than 70 faith leaders gathered together at the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA. What was special about this group was that these faith leaders were all transgendered, or friends and advocates for the transgender community. It was a very special event and a lot was shared about faith, hope and how our faith communities could be more accepting of transgendered individuals. The event was called, "Transgender Religious Leaders Summit 2010." The speakers and panelists came from a variety of faith traditions. All spoke about the progress they have made, and are helping to make. It was inspiring to see so many connect and plan for the future.
