The Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray responds to reports of Trump Administration plan to narrowly define gender.
In response to an October 21 New York Times article reporting that the Trump Administration was considering “narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth,” Unitarian Universalist Association President Susan Frederick-Gray released statements of support for transgender, genderqueer, and non-binary people on UUA.org and on Facebook.
On Facebook, she called on UUs to work to create “communities of inclusion and solidarity, protecting and advocating with the transgender, genderqueer and non-binary community” and outlined seven action points (recommended by Out Magazine), which included voting yes on a Massachusetts ballot measure to uphold the state’s protections for trans people, and contributing to trans-led organizations, among other suggestions.
