I am the Minister of Pitt Street Uniting Church in Sydney, and an Anglican priest with over three decades of experience of ministering in a variety of different contexts and levels (local, national, pastoral, educational, advocacy, ecumenical and inter-religious) in both my native England and (for 19 years now) in Australia.
I came out publicly as a transgender female after many years (better late than never!). However this reality has been with me all my life, with all kinds of resistances, negative and positive aspects (for the latter, see my reflections on being a border crosser generally).
Accepting myself fully has been a major process and a significant part of this (and of my delay in coming out) has been concern for the impact on my relationships with others. I hope therefore that what I share may be of some assistance to others, not least any of those I love and treasure who have some perplexity or questions.
for some reflections on my own gender journey, see also posts which will appear here on my trans spirit blog
More about me My gender is of course but a part of me and I am actively engaged in many other aspects of life, spirituality and joy. - a little more about those things can be found on my Blessed Imp site and blog
