Transgender Religious Professional Unitarian Universalists Together (TRUUsT) is a newly forming organization within the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA) that serves as a touchstone for transgender policy issues within the UUA.
TRUUsT’s steering committee held its first meeting April 22-25, 2008 in a retreat setting where the participants started developing working relationships, uncovering transgender history in the UUA, and planning for future meetings. Membership on the steering committee has been by invitation.
Membership in the TRUUsT organization is open to any Unitarian Universalist transgender or transgender ally who is a member of either the Liberal Religious Educators Association (LREDA) or the Unitarian Univeralist Ministers Association (UUMA). The organization plans to hold an annual membership retreat for transgender religious professionals and their religious professional allies (date to be announced, possibly beginning in 2012).
Blessings on your new venture.
I’m definitely an ally.
I’d love to talk to whoever is behind this soon as I will be leading a session at GA called “AN LGBTQQIA PRIMER: WHAT ALLIES NEED TO KNOW.” Can you contact me by email and we’ll set up a time to talk. Will you be at GA?
