Nicole Garcia, Transgender Pastor: Her Journey with Faith Communities and Ours

Rev. Nicole M. Garcia is a newly ordained Lutheran pastor who self-identifies as a transgender Latina. Listen to a small part of her journey along with her thoughts about the mixed situation in the faith communities.

For example, United Methodist churches voted to bar LGBTQ members from being ordained and banned same sex marriages which may lead to a schism in that denomination.

Religious exemption laws continue to pop up in Colorado and across the nation. Health and Human Services’ new Religious Conscience rule allowing discrimination by health care workers just got blocked in New York district court. We are going forward and backwards with our place in the faith communities. Join us for this confounding discussion.
