In 2006, she began her journey into HIV Prevention &Education as an outreach worker, and since then has been a HIV Prevention Case Manager, Mentor, Health Educator, and Advocate for the Transgender Community.

Spirit Transcending Gender
                         by Rev. Doti Boon

     This coming Sunday we have a remarkable woman talking about her spiritual journey as a trans person.  Other people will be joining her with their own spiritual stories.
     In my friendship with trans people, I feel the Transgender Spirit is evidence of Spirit expressing its diversity. There are no rules to govern how Spirit must manifest.
     Some Native American elders believe there is an abundance of transgendered people being born at this time who can help heal our world. Gender is at the very heart of who trans are as human beings. Gender transitions -- the very process of gender-shift -- can be viewed as a kind of Vision Quest, addressing that age-old question:  who are we? Everyone needs to operate in today's world with deep compassion and fresh relevance for people of all energetics.
     The challenge is to respect everyone as caring and capable people. Increasingly, we are aware that trans-gendered people are awakening and intuitively finding their own voices and callings. Just as women are reclaiming their connection with the divine, transgendered people are reconnecting with their own rich spiritual heritage and reclaiming sacred space. 
     Once barriers fall away and fear gives way to love we become aware, as I mentioned in last week's talk, we are deities. We are Spirit manifesting in human forms. Let us live that truth, and help everyone see the beauty and strength that lies beyond the constraints of gender. And let us give thanks for the unique opportunity to do so.

  • We love God and God loves us.
  • We are all different from most other people in some way.
  • We still love God, and God still loves us.
