Welcome to the Dignity Trans blog!
It’s about time! We are excited to share with you the main webpage where we will post news and updates about the DignityUSA Trans Caucus. We will also link to news posted here within our monthly email newsletter and Google discussion group.
Please see the pages above to learn more about who we are and what we’re all about.
A diverse community
Is the Dignity Trans Caucus only for transgender Catholics?
This is an important question. The answer is no, we need the involvement of all kinds of people to make this group work! It is important for us to have many voices.
No matter your faith background or how much you know about transgender topics (or even if you just stumbled upon this page), we need you. We could particularly use the support of those who are unfamiliar with gender diversity, since we would like to hear from you about what questions people have, and how we can improve awareness and outreach. Gender identity is something that we ALL have as individuals, so understanding gender and how we as a society appreciate gender diversity is something that affects all of us.
We hope for a varied community because we exist for many reasons, and our primary goals are Support & Advocacy, Education & Awareness, and Outreach. These goals rely on human connection and can only be achieved with the help of many–especially with the support of allies and people who want to learn more.
Please see our Vision for the Future page to see what our long-term goals are for the Trans Caucus. As awareness of the existence of gender diversity increases in society and in faith communities, we hope to be here to dispel myths and bridge gaps. We are dreaming big.
