NCTE in the News: Gender and the Pulpit



Workplace difficulties can arise for transgender people in nearly all professions, but what about those who are called to work for God?

January 19 – 23, The National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies in Religion and Ministry (CLGS) hosted a cutting-edge conference on the intersection of denominational policy and transgender people at the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA. Sixty-five religious leaders attended, from Lutheran, Episcopalian, Presbyterian, Unitarian, Quaker, Jewish and Agnostic communities across the country. On the agenda: denominational policy and outreach to transgender communities.

Newsweek magazine reporter Lauren McCauley covered the summit in a wonderful story, “Gender and the Pulpit.” To read the full article, please click here.
