Whether you are transgender or someone who cares about trans people, you've probably had that conversation more times than you can count (we have, too).
But there's so much more to being transgender & Christian than that!
We've found a much richer faith when we stop arguing over "is it OK?" and start looking at what queerness has to add to the conversation of faith. Looking for that, instead, can be a blessing to transgender folks and also to straight, cisgender supporters.
We want to share it with you.
- "Is it ok?" is a conversation that's been happening over and over and over again for years.
- It ignores the reality that transgender Christians already exist (hello! you're talking to one!)
It focuses on defending our existence rather than celebrating our blessings
When we stop at "Is it ok?" we miss out on so much that the trans experience has to teach everyone

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 Walking Toward Resurrection.
As I explored my transition from female to male, I grew distant from my faith. I found Walking Toward Resurrection after I transitioned and it helped me to regain that connection between spirituality and my transness.
Walking Toward Resurrection is 68-pages long, in PDF format. Here's a tiny, tiny bit of what you'll find inside:
The moment when Jesus "comes out"
How Jesus can relate to the "broken record" of having to come out over and over and over again
A bit of time traveling back to where it really began
When others know someone is a queer before they do
What "taking up your cross" means for LGBTQ people — and what it definitely doesn't mean
Some Judases that you might have met (and why some folks might you you are a Judas)
Do you transgender people break our bodies? and for whom?
What Jesus's last night in The Garden has to do with transition
The public and private toll of Crucifixion
What we need to learn from Easter Saturday — that quiet, uncertain, often skipped over day
What Mary can teach us about family
What to make of misrecognition?
Trans scars are holy (and how a misunderstood disciple can help you remember that)
What does Resurrection look like?

We're book lovers. Fr. Shay worked at a book store for many years (and his collection of books makes Brian's "dozens of books on a self" look minuscule in comparison). There's something about going into a local bookstore or library and thumbing through a book to make sure you really want it before you buy it. The internet has done amazing things for LGBTQ people but it can't (yet) make a book appear in your hands.
So we're standing by this. If you're not satisfied with Walking Toward Resurrection, we offer a full, no-questions-asked money-back guarantee for 90 days. All you have to do is reply to the order confirmation and we'll refund you.
(We're pretty confident you're going to love it: we've only had one person ask for a refund so far)
Queer Theology is a way for me to reconcile my love for Christ and identity as a transgender Christian.
In the transition period between going to an unaffirming church and finding a new church home, the resources here became, in my mind, the real manifestation of the Body of Christ for me.
Queer Theology has helped me reclaim the Bible as a tool for making meaning in my life. I hoped to find a place to go deeper in my explorations without having to apologize for either my queerness or my Christianity or even my doubts about the divinity of Christ. It has been all that and more.
