Often being a trans-identified man or woman brings the issues of spirituality and faith to the forefront, after trying unsuccessfully to repress these thoughts that have been influenced by the “negatives” in the mainstream faith communities.
Denominations and faith groups still struggle mightily over issues of sexuality and faith. Many of the modern faith communities have accepted and welcomed the gays and lesbians, and claim to welcome the spectrum of the LGBT community.
However, we find they are still struggling with the actual inclusion and understanding of the trans community. Gender identity is distinct from sexual orientation.
For those of us who were brought up in the mainstream fundamentalist churches, we’ve found it has become one of our biggest obstacles to peace in our journeys.
Whether you are from a Christian background or Buddhist, or Hindu, or Pagan, or just searching to find your place, if you are struggling with issues of acceptance and want to find some peace, we’re here for you.
TransMentors International has Faith Leaders from several different backgrounds willing to contact you and support you in your quest to resolve the “Trans vs. Faith/Spirituality” debate that’s going on inside you.
Contact us with your first name, email/phone number, Time Zone, and your faith background/interest. We will contact one of our Faith Leaders and someone will get in touch with you as soon as they can to offer their support.
or Call us at 1-877-366-3888 and leave a message.
Note: If we do not have a Faith Leader with the background you are interested in, we will still have someone contact you and offer their support. You are welcome to accept their offer or politely decline. We’ll do our best to match you with someone with similar beliefs.
Please allow up to 72 hours for someone to contact you. All volunteers with TransMentors International are just that – Volunteers, and have lives and jobs and they generously donate their time to help when needed.
