Engage!

Transfaith™ is a national non-profit that is led by transgender people. We are a multi-tradition, multi-racial, multi-gender organization working to support transgender spiritual/cultural workers and their leadership in community. We work closely with many allied organizations, secular, spiritual, and religious, transgender-led and otherwise.

We believe that the experiences, spiritual vitality, and leadership of people of transgender experience make our communities stronger and more vibrant. We bring people together to develop conversation, strategy, and community in order to help us all reach our full potential.

We invite you to be a part of our efforts!

Our Vital Connections are a critical part of our efforts to reach out.  As a Vital Connection, you would make a regular financial contribution, which contributes to the backbone of this work -- funding basic expenses like keeping the website up and the phone lines active. Will you make a contribution today?

More About Us

Mission

Transfaith
affirms, empowers, and engages
transgender and gender non-conforming people and their communities.
Through education and collaboration,
we equip and cultivate
diverse expressions of gender-affirming spiritual vitality.

Vision

We envision a world where we honor our diverse gender experiences and gain practical strength from our spiritual journeys--where diverse communities are well equipped to honor the varied life passages of their members and cultivate the rich connection between health and spiritual vitality.

In this world, people of diverse gender experiences...

  • Contribute to our communities in vibrant ways
  • Engage in our particular spiritual work with vigor

In this world, communities...

  • Celebrate the contributions of transgender and gender non-conforming members as essential to the whole
  • Embrace the unique spiritual and personal work of each member as a blessing for all

Core Values

We believe that the rich diversity of gender experiences is a powerful resource for humanity and we embrace spirituality as an important resource contributing to the health and wholeness of people everywhere. In support of courageous self expression, we are committed to being:

  • Relevant - We prioritize whole people, together with our day to day concerns, lived experience, diverse commitments, strengths and vulnerabilities. Our work is relational and we want to be relevant to the experiences of real people.
  • Positive - We infuse affirmation into our encounters, while encouraging self-determination and mutual respect. We believe that an environment of celebration, generosity, and gratitude, are essential to the work of personal and collective empowerment.
  • Authentic - We recognize that individuals cannot be fully affirmed in isolation from their cultural and community backgrounds. We seek to explore our many differences, crafting solutions that reflect the diversity of human experience.
  • Accessible - We work with sensitivity to the barriers created by an unjust world. We create opportunities that prioritize those who face stigma or prejudice, navigate the world with physical challenges, or struggle with lack of resources, safety, or security.
  • Collaborative - We engage productively in coalition with other groups, projects, and people who share our concerns. We know that this work is not ours alone and seek to cultivate productive working relationships with others.
