The TransEpiscopal Blog on General Convention 2012

Posted by Kendall Harmon

From here:
TransEpiscopal is a group of transgender Episcopalians and our significant others, families, friends and allies dedicated to enriching our spiritual lives and to making the Episcopal Church a welcoming and empowering place that all of us truly can call our spiritual home. We are an informal group meeting mostly through the Internet and though many of us are affiliated with the Episcopal Church we have no official relationship to the Episcopal Church.

Most of our ongoing contact takes place through an Internet Group on Yahoo Groups. Membership in this group is by permission only and is intended for the use of Transgender Episcopalians, their Family and Significant Others, Allied Friends, and others who share our concerns.

TransEpiscopal had it's beginnings in 2004 with informal contacts between a few of us. In 2005 we began our Yahoo Group and since then have sent representatives to Lambeth Conference in England, a very small representation at the 2006 General Convention and a eight member delegation to the 2009 General Convention. At the 2009 General Convention we were invited to share some booth space with Integrity and lobbied for Trans-friendly legislation with great success.
You can also find a post on General Convention resolutions they are following here and a post on the importance of the "T" in the LTBG agenda there.

I will take comments on this submitted by email only to at KSHarmon[at]mindspring[dot]com.
