Epic Gallery: 150 Years Of Lesbians And Other Lady-Loving-Ladies click here for more posts from “the herstory issue” // “the way we were” I really threw myself into Herstory Month, in June, eating every accessible herstory archive on the internet and spending hours in the library, accumulating massive stacks of borrowed books which I stored at the foot of my bed.

Students will learn about the history of anti-LGBT slurs.

Glossary of terms There is a wide variety of terms — often ambiguous, complex, and newly-coined ones — to describe trans experience and identities. Included among this list will be some fairly simple explanations; if a term is hotly debated, I will say so, and not bother to explain the details very clearly. I'm also taking the liberty of defining a few words that you're no doubt familiar with ("gender" and "sex" and so on, and other words like "pass" or "stealth"), as they may have connotations in the trans community that most people don't normally associate them with.

Holy Women, Holy Men « Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music Calendar Subcommittee Update: A Great Cloud of Witnesses February 1, 2014 by Derek Olsen At the last General Convention, the Standing Commission on Liturgy & Music was directed to continue revising Holy Women, Holy Men with particular attention to the 2006 guidelines, renewed attention to the form, poetry, and seasons of liturgical life inherent in the Book of Common Prayer and to continue to seek responses from the wider Church.
