hunter1701d asked: So I recent went on a mission trip w/ my church and came out as transguy to a small group of people. They then told me God made me a woman for a reason. They didn't ever try to understand. I just need to know its okay to transgender and a Christian.

It is 100% unequivocally okay. 

And while you may not get the support you need from your church, you ought to know there are many deeply religious Christians who believe there is nothing wrong with you and you deserve to feel safe, happy and faithful in your identity.

My name is Kate, I’m nineteen, and I’m a student at the University of Pittsburgh. I worked extremely hard in high school and managed to earn a 4.1 GPA. In College, I made the Dean’s List for academic excellence during both the fall and spring semester. Unfortunately, a week before my first year of college started, my father went through my mail and found out that I am gay. My family, including extended family, is extremely homophobic. After they found out, my parents cut me off financially and I am no longer living with them. They are both unwilling and unable to cosign loans on my behalf. I have searched extensively, but I have been unable to find any loans which don’t require a cosigner. Due to my inability to cover an entire year of tuition, I have decided to spend the fall semester at a community college in the area I am currently living. I have some money saved up from my summer job and a $6500 school loan which will be used toward the second semester, but I still need about $15,000 on top of that in order to make it through this school year. I’m one of three people renting a house for the year with a monthly rent, and I also need to have money for food. I have asthma and allergies which require several medications monthly in order to maintain my health. Most of the money I make at work is going toward rent for this semester and my classes at the community college. Going to Pitt is a dream of mine and I couldn’t bear the thought of not being able to stay there. I am majoring in English and History and minoring in German with the hope of becoming a novelist. I will be immensly grateful if your contributions allow me to stay at Pitt. I’m praying every day for a miracle to help make this possible.

Alicia’s American Sign Language Dictionary.  Alicia is showing you four important signs in ASL:  ”I Love You,” “Queer,” “Bisexual,” and “Transgender.” 

When you’re talking about someone’s identity, make sure to only use words they’re OK with. 

If anyone has suggestions to improve these pages, they are very much welcome. 

Mq. & Mrs. is a queer/trans coloring book in progress that only uses real people as models.  New pages are published every Sunday at noon. Interested in modeling for a page? See our site for more info.  

I have seen BISEXUAL and TRANSGENDER before, but I normally see QUEER fingerspelled. Keep in mind that these are not always universally accepted by the Deaf community (unlike the signs for GAY or LESBIAN which are easy to google) and sometimes you will have to fingerspell these out anyway. But the only way a new sign is made is by being used so I encourage spreading these around.
