More Resources

For even more books, twitters, websites, podcasts, and videos by and for trans Christians than what is listed here, I highly recommend Austen Hartke's resources page!

 

Two other sites I recommend: transfaith and transsaints. The Reformation Project, Queer Grace, Believe Out Loud, and FaithfullyLGBT are also great as general LGBT faith resources. 

Below is a list of trans and nonbinary Christians today, with links to where you can go to read their writings and listen to them speak for themselves.  

Tell me if there are more books, sites, podcasts, or people I should include here!

Trans Christianity: A Timeline of Gender Diversity in Christian History is a website created by Avery Smith, a nonbinary Catholic-Presbyterian graduate of Louisville Seminary who runs queerlychristian.tumblr.com.
