Transgender & Christian
We understand that transgender and/or nonbinary people have different needs than cisgender people so this is a special section just for us.
Maybe you’re struggling with whether or not it’s okay to be trans or nonbinary or with whether you can transition.
Maybe you’re dealing with unaffirming parents (or parents who just don’t get it).
Maybe you want to see how your trans experience can enrich your faith.
We get that.
You are not alone. You’re in the right place and we’re excited to journey with you toward claiming your own goodness.
Wherever you are, we’ve got you covered.

Did you know the resurrection is trans?
When I was in seminary I was struggling to find meaning in my faith. Then an assignment on the Doubting Thomas narrative in my exegesis class changed everything. I suddenly saw myself in the Gospel story for the first time and it made me excited about how my queer and transgender experience might deepen Bible reading for me instead of be a detriment.
Over the course of several months I wrote a “transgender passion narrative” and it saved my faith. It was the first time in a long time that I felt emotionally engaged with God and with theology. I’m excited to announce the release of that work — part theology, part memoir — in digital book form as Walking Toward Resurrection.

With this powerful collection of emails, Micah shares the conversations that he had with his mother while coming out as transgender. We hope these emails can help you — no matter where you’re coming from.
