Transgender faith conference seeks to educate, empower – by Matt Comer

First TransFaith In Color Conference held in Charlotte July 29-31

Charlotte – The LGBT community was nearly ripped apart in 2007 during the months-long debate that ultimately stripped transgender protections out of the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). Versions of the bill since then have included gender-identity along with sexual orientation, but deep and unhealed wounds still exist between some transgender leaders and the larger LGB community.
