From Child to Adult: Stories of Love & Understanding

Through storytelling and open dialogue, community members will engage in discussion about gender identity and transition with transgender individuals, their family members, and clinicians who practice with transgender/gender diverse youth.  Transgender individuals and families with various backgrounds and experiences will share their journeys and how love and understanding ultimately prevailed.  This program will also provide an overview of gender development, creating gender-inclusive environments, and practice resources for family and friends of transgender individuals.





SUNDAY NIGHT – SEEING GENDER DIVERSITY IN SCRIPTURE
Sunday, October 13 at 7pm 
Admission is free. Childcare available.


Have you ever heard someone say that it's not possible to be transgender AND a Christian? Do you have questions about the verses in the Bible that talk about things like clothing and gender roles? Not sure how to hold on to your faith and love your nonbinary family member? Join Austen Hartke as he leads a journey through scripture, digging into the passages used against transgender people, and highlighting the stories of the Bible's gender-non-conformers. Austen Hartke is a transgender person of faith whose greatest passion is helping other trans and gender-non-conforming people see themselves in scripture.
