Christianity and Black Trans People

Episode Description

In celebration of Black History Month, Imara talks with two religious leaders about their faith, ministeries, and dedication to justice. First, she’s joined by Reverend Louis J. Mitchell, who shares how he found his way back to the church, creates space for the pain caused by Christianity, and continues to grapple with toxic masculinity. Next, Imara chats with Reverend Valerie Spencer about repairing her relationship with God, discovering her calling as an advocate, and finding comfort in religion amidst suffering. Check out the TransLash Guide to Black History Month here.
