Interfaith Committee Meeting & Gender Discussion Group: By & For People of Color

Interfaith Committee on Transgender Equality
Next gathering Monday June 25th  from 6:30 to 8:00 at 14 Beacon Street in Boston.

Happy Pride season, ICTErs!  Can you believe how long and full it has become?

It was good to see some of you at our first Community Gathering in April, the Boston edition of MTPC’s Trans Town Hall Meetings, the Philadelphia Transgender Health Conference, the Erev Pride Liberation Seder, and of course Boston Pride Day where MTPC was a Grand Marshal and tabled.  I didn’t make it to the Pride Memorial Vigil or Pride Interfaith Service this year, but I heard good things.  We postponed our ICTE Community Conference Call because there was so much else going on, but we will try again at the end of the summer.

Next Monday June 25th is our next Gathering, from 6:30 to 8:00 at 14 Beacon Street in Boston.  Please RSVP to Mycroft@MassTPC.org if you can, but please know that it’s more than okay to just show up.  We gather the 4th Monday of each month.  Share information, inspiration and support with other trans and allied people interested in working at the intersection of trans and faith communities.     

It’s actually time to start thinking about Trans Awareness Week in November, which includes the Trans Day of Remembrance.  We’d love to see even more faith communities participate than last year.  One great collection of ways to do that is through MTPC’s “I AM : Trans People Speak” project(http://www.transpeoplespeak.org/) – the Community phase means we’re now accepting stories from anywhere in the country, and we’d love to have more people of faith.

We’re also planning to start a discussion group for trans people of faith.  And we’re thinking about faith-site trainings and policies – including helping faith-based social services better serve their trans clients.

Best wishes,
Mycroft Masada Holmes
Chair, MTPC’s ICTE
