Last night I discussed transgender and Christianity with my bible fellowship group. It was an overwhelming success. There were many questions asked and I was able to answer them to the best of my knowledge.

I opened up the discussion defining the many transgender terms. I explained that 'transgender' is an umbrella term for people whose gender identity and/or expression differs from their birth sex. I mentioned that the term may include transsexuals, crossdressers, gender queer, gender non-conforming and other gender-variant people.

I had the most questions about transition and Gender Identity Disorder. I explained that transitioning is a complex prcedure that occurs over a long period of time. I shared that not all transgender choose to have Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS).

I was able to explain what Gender Identity Disorder is and the current controversy with the medical and psychological establishments about changing the present prognosis that is used.

I shared the events of my life that led to discovering that I was a crossdresser and a transgender person. I shared that a person can be Christian and transgender because God doesn't show any favoritism.

The discussion was a huge success and eyes and minds were opened. I pray that I can do this at other places.
