And welcome to this community. So far the response have been rapid, and I'm happy to see that. I'm new to Unitarian Universalism, but grew up in a Methodist church. I first went to UU Church on Valentines day of 2009 with my girlfriend, and have continued going as much as I am able.
I started this community, because I feel that it is important to have a place to have conversations about our spirituality and how being gender nonconforming fits into that. I also have found that in my own church, I feel transgender people are underrepresented, and I have a hard time sharing with my church community about my joys and concerns. In addition, while browsing the bookstore at the UUA that there were many books on why gay marriage is important, but nothing on transrights.
I hope this finds you well, and I look forward to hearing from you all.
