Transgender, two-spirit & queer: the importance of vocabulary and understanding

In order to have an informed, respectful discussion on the topic of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, it is helpful to have common definitions of the terminology as it is used in our culture.

For those who wish to become more informed about the issue of transgender identity, I have added two articles in the “Articles and Links” section that explore some of the experiences and tensions of transgender identity from a secular and faith-based perspective. Please see Understanding Transgender: FAQ About Transgender People from The National Centre for Transgender Equality, as well as Four Questions I Have About Transgender Identity from Christianity Today.
