@rebeldinosaur Unfortunately not an affirming denomination (we didn't realize when we joined, also we believed at the time we could be in the closet forever....). Technically the church has no official opinions on trans people, but mostly because they never thought about the existence of trans people before 😕
@liz That's tough. One thing that could help would be if you can find a smaller group of friends to be a supportive oasis for you and advocate for you within the community. Otherwise, even if the congregation handles it okay, being the token representative for trans people can bring on a lot of emotional labor.
@rebeldinosaur yeah, that's a good point. I can't figure out how much day to day it would be? Maybe it would be a lot at first but then people wouldn't think of it as much? We are already the token interracial couple. People commented at first, but mostly I don't think they think about it anymore (or at least they don't say anything?). Possibly this is different though since it's way less common 😕
