In OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance, Mx Chris Paige has gathered together 29 transgender, non-binary, and intersex authors to share about their lived experience in relationship with Christian tradition.

Having provided a detailed survey of relevant scripture in OtherWise Christian: A Guidebook for Transgender Liberation, Mx Chris Paige now brings us a survey of testimonies from OtherWise Christians in this new book due out in Spring 2020. Reminding us that the discussion of gender issues is not a theoretical one, this collection provides insights into the ways that Christian tradition has served as both an obstacle and a support for transgender, intersex, and non-binary people in the modern world.

Authors include classic spokespersons for transgender Christianity, such as Dr Virginia Mollenkott, Rev Erin Swenson, and Rev Victoria Kolakowski, as well as newer millenial voices like Diamond Stylz of the Marsha’s Plate podcast and intersex voices like Lianne Simon of the Intersex and Faith project.

  • Section 1: Claiming Our Voices. A collection of ground-breaking reflections from early representatives.
  • Section 2: Resistance and Resilience. More reflections on life and scripture.
  • Section 3: Resisting the Stories They Tell about Us. Encounters with erasure and antagonistic arguments.

Authors from Catholic, Mennonite, Baptist, Seventh-day Adventist, and many more faith traditions are included, providing a rich tapestry of perspectives. Each author shares about how they wrestled with Christian communities and traditions, with varied results. Some stayed. Some left. Some wandered and returned with new resolve.
