Human identity is not up for dismissive political debate or political definitions designed to render others less than or completely invisible.
Our family, our friends, all of humanity, have intrinsic value as humans no matter what. All (that is a universal “all”) are created in beauty, born from divine blessing, and live lives as beloved children of God. This includes gender identity.
To all of my friends and family who are transgender, non-binary, and gender fluid, I see you. I stand with you. You will not be erased.
