Readings

  

A liturgical reading by Malcolm Himschoot

In honor of the transgendered folk who died by violence, whose names we call on the Transgendered Day of Remembrance. An offering to them, and a gift to this community. May we remember, always, our beloved dead.

Sample opening remarks for transgender day of remembrance made available by the Standing on the Side of Love/UUA campaign

This prayer from First UU in Brooklyn (2011) was spoken with 4 voices. Some lines have only one person speaking them; some lines have two; and some lines have all four voices.

Contains prayers, readings, personal stories from transgender people, quotes from rabbinic leaders, and suggested concrete action steps. From Keshet.
