Upcoming Personal Appearance
Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Women of Faith and our allies gather to discuss the challenges of coming out—not only regarding sexual/gender identities but also our convictions on personal, family, national, and global justice issues. Presentations by Virginia Ramey Mollenkott and Mary E. Hunt, three panel discussions, singing, worship, alcohol-free partying, and opportunities for individual participation will make for a happy celebration of what has become a year-round support group.
About Dr. Mollenkott:
In 1978, Virginia co-authored Is The Homosexual My Neighbor? A Positive Christian View with Letha Dawson Scanzoni. After being expanded and updated in 1994, this ground-breaking work still stands as one of the most informative and thorough explorations of the topic. Sensuous Spirituality, Dr. Mollenkott's 1992 book (revised and updated in 2008), examines the integration of sexuality and spirituality, social activism and personal peace.
Dr. Virginia Ramey Mollenkott has lectured widely on lesbian, gay, and bisexual rights and has also been active in the transgender cause, authoring Omnigender (revised and updated version published in 2007), and serving as co-author of Transgender Journeys (2003).
"All of her writings may be subsumed under the theme of oneness,
which Mollenkott variously describes as an 'organic wholeness' and a
'transcendental integrative vision.' The emphasis is on seeing God in
all things and serving God in all activities, integration of the human
personality around a unifying center, and awareness of humanity's
