Becky Garrison’s articles re: trans & faith & more

You may remember our writer friend Becky Garrison from such roles as "Trans clergy are finally gaining greater acceptance (As we approach Transgender Faith Action Week, progress can be seen in attitudes to trans people within the church)" (England’s [Manchester] Guardian), "International Transgender Day of Remembrance: Getting the Story, in Their Own Words" (University of Southern California's Trans/Missions), and  “Trans Faith, Trans Web” (The Revealer).  We first met in person at the 2012 Philadelphia Transgender Health Conference.

Becky's 7th book, "Roger Williams' Little Book of Virtues", was published in March.

Last August, Becky became one of the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism's six recipients of Knight Grants for Reporting on Religion and American Public Life -- “Becky Garrison, whose work has appeared in the Washington Post, U.S. Catholic magazine and The Revealer, will report on the challenges facing religious leaders who reach out to transgendered and gender nonconforming individuals."  Her nine-month project included Massachusetts. (And no, I don't know why the illo is a huge black cross.)
