More trans history will be made in Washington DC today as the Rev. Dr. Cameron Partridge is set to become the first out trans pastor to preach from the National Cathedral's Canterbury Pulpit.
It will be part of a service in which the cathedral celebrates TBLG Pride Month, and it will be officiated by the Right Rev. Gene Robinson
In addition to the historic participation of Rev. Partridge, who is the Episcopal chaplain at Boston University, the service will also include readings and prayers from members of the BTLG community.
The Very Rev. Gary Hall, dean of the
cathedral, says he hopes Partridge's appearance "will send a symbolic
message in support of greater equality for the transgender community."
That message of support from a religious community is definitely needed in the wake of the Southern Baptists passing their anti-trans resolution on June 10.
Congratulations Rev. Partridge on this historic occasion, and hope you get pack the pews attendance levels for this LGBT service.
