Genderqueer Celebration at Chicago Theological Seminary
[Crossposted on Trans-cendental]
Yes, you read that correctly.
April 23, there was a genderqueer celebration at Chicago Theological Seminary. There was also an auction – a fundraiser for “top surgery” for an FTM seminarian.
It was an evening of prayer, drag performances, music, and personal testimonies.
There were at least three transgender seminarians in attendance, and many other LGB seminarians and seminary faculty and staff, not to mention straight-but-supportive seminarians, faculty, and staff.
Most of the big-ticket (read $400-700) auction items went to faculty and staff.
For every heavily funded institution like Bob Jones University, there is a liberal seminary like CTS struggling to prepare progressive religious leaders.
They can use your support.
