STATEMENT FROM BISHOP GENE ROBINSON
Equal rights for Transgender People is the next front in the equal-rights-for-all effort. But more of our citizens need to understand the experiences, challenges and needs of their trans neighbors. This conference is an extraordinary opportunity to hear national leaders as well as local activists, speaking to the experience and needs of our trans citizens. Even gay and lesbian people are often uneducated and unfamiliar with the complexities of our trans brothers and sisters who have been so supportive of our efforts for full equality. Run, don’t walk, to sign up for this great conference!

Episcopal Bishop of New Hampshire
Encouraging the T (transgender) to join together with the LGB (lesbian, gay, and bisexual) in LGBT, and the LGB to join together with the T in LGBT — Wow, what a swell concept!
