Learn and ConnectFaith Communities
Today, many faith traditions are examining their canonical texts to understand gender and to shed light on how assumptions regarding norms may have influenced how gender has been defined and interpreted in their sacred texts.

As more and more congregants seek help from faith leaders to navigate the gender journeys of family members and those in their religious communities, many leaders find themselves trying to understand this essential part of self without having been provided with a proper foundation in their training. Gender Spectrum is here to help people of faith learn about gender and connect with others who are navigating gender and their spiritual journey.
