This interactive, informative webinar, presented by Alex Kapitan of the Unitarian Universalist Association LGBTQ Ministries office, will offer a crash course in transgender identity and provide practical and concrete ways to increase your mindfulness and support of people of all identities and ways of expressing gender. Bring your questions and your curiosity and prepare to leave behind everything you thought you knew about gender!
Participants will gain a greater understanding of terminology, the experiences of transgender people, the ways in which all of us are impacted by gender norms and expectations, and how we can collectively increase our welcome and inclusion as liberal religious people.
This webinar will be accessible and beneficial for all--those who have zero exposure to trans identity and those who have knowledge and experience with trans identity.
Alex Kapitan is a transgender and queer-identified lifelong Unitarian Universalist with proud Midwestern roots. As the UUA’s LGBTQ and Multicultural Programs Administrator, Alex supports the Welcoming Congregation Program and other resources that assist Unitarian Universalist congregations and leaders in increasing their welcome and inclusion of all people.
