General Assembly Workshop: TRANS PEOPLE, HUMAN STORIES

July 21, 2019 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
(See Assembly Docket)

In 2008, only 8% of Americans reported that they had met a transgender person. Today, the figure is closer to 1 in 5, and we have begun to have trans and gender non-conforming (GNC) characters in movies and TV shows. Don’t be a statistic! Attend this workshop and get to know some of your Christian sibilngs who are trans and/or GNC.

In our time together, we’ll do a brief level-set about terminology, then introduce a panel of transgender and GNC people who will share a little about each of their journeys. Then we’ll create a “safe space” for questions from the audience — doing our best to answer whatever respectful questions the audience may have about trans/GNC experience.

Panel session leader:

Robin Knauerhase
Moderator, Disciples LGBTQ+ Alliance and
Research Scientist (recently retired) Intel Corporation
Ms. Knauerhase is the first “out” transgender person to serve as AllianceQ Moderator.
