About

Hello, and welcome to CatholicTrans.

This blog began as a personal initiative to reconcile the faith of my upbringing with my transgender identity. However, over time it has grown organically into a resource for others as well as myself. Given the flood of misinformation out there,  CatholicTrans is an attempt to create a space on the web for real, non-fear-driven information about transgender issues in light of being Christian and Catholic.

This blog is an intersectional project: a very specific engagement of trans identities and experiences from a distinctly Catholic perspective. Such being the case, please note it does not necessarily represent the views of either myself (I am no longer Catholic) or the transgender movement as a whole. And while this blog represents a sliver in time of my own beliefs, I am still firmly convinced that the only way for the Catholic theological tradition to be both logically consistent and truly compassionate is to wholeheartedly accept its trans* children.

  1. Thank you so much for writing this blog. Your words were so very helpful to me when coming to grips with my Christian faith and my trans identity.

  2. Just discovered your blog via your /r/Catholic post. As someone who doesn’t quite identify as a Catholic but is certainly inspired by his Catholic upbringing (and writers like Tolkien, GK Chesterton), I felt I related to you. I also admire your honesty and exploration around gender in the Catholic faith. Just wanted say that! Keep up the awesome work here! – JJ (aka @shamansun)
