Gender, Rebirth and the Holy Work of Change

Gabriel Garcia Marquez wrote that, “Human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but … Life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.” On this day where, culturally we gather around the powerful notion of resurrection, we examine the many ways in which we as human beings are asked to continually make space to give birth to the new: both as individuals and toward the collective. On this day of Transgender Visibility, as well, we’ll celebrate and lift up how our beloved gender-expansive siblings have helped to crack open old, limiting definitions of self and sexuality, in order to articulate a more multifaceted and vibrant world for us all. Bring a simple dish to share for our potluck celebration after!
