Transfaith partnering with "Trans* People and Their Faith"


Transfaith is pleased to announce our partnership with Yvo Manuel Vas Dias and his "Trans* People and Their Faith" group on Facebook. Transfaith is now sharing stories of "Trans* People and Their Faith" in the group daily.

"There are people in this world who think it's impossible to be a trangender person of faith," says Chris Paige, Executive Director of Transfaith, "but if you move through our communities, you will find incredible spiritual depth. We want to be more intentional about sharing those stories."

Since 2009, Yvo Manuel Vas Dias (based in the Netherlands), has been using social media to create spaces for people to connect under the umbrella of his Working Group on Transgender, Religion, Philosophy and Ethics.

"Yvo reached out to us about collaborating," says Paige. "This just seemed like a natural way for us to work together in support of the communities we are both seeking to serve."

Both Transfaith and the Working Group on Transgender, Religion, Philosophy and Ethics are multi-faith organizations, so the range of stories represents a wide variety of perspectives.  Many people don't use "faith" language, but still have deeply held spiritual or philosophical beliefs that sustain them.

The same stories will NOT (UPDATED) also be posted on the main Transfaith Facebook page, but Facebook groups gives people more flexibility in how to be notified about stories when they are posted. 

UPDATED (3/27/2017): Transfaith is updating our Facebook and Twitter strategies. Articles will continue to be posted in "Trans* People and Their Faith" but may not show up on the main Transfaith feeds, unless we choose to highlight them as a priority.
