General Assembly Workshop: TRANSGENDER 101 – the “T” in LGBT

July 21, 2019 @ 1:30 pm – 2:50 pm
(See Assembly Docket)

Topics about transgender and gender non-conforming (GNC) people have been prominent in the news, in television and movies, and in public opinion. Should transgender people be banned from serving in the US military? Who gets to pick what bathroom or locker room transgender people use? What about teachers who refuse to call a student by their preferred name or their legal name? Can transgender people live normal, successful, and happy lives?

Whether you know and love any transgender/GNC people, or whether it’s all new to you, or you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, this workshop will provide basic facts and understanding for the personal and political aspects of transgender/GNC people in the world and in the church.
