Episcopal priest Cameron Partridge wants to raise awareness for trans issues

 

The Rev. Dr. Cameron Patridge made history in June 2014 when he became the first openly transgender priest to preside over services at the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. His sermon was in honor of Pride Month and was presided over the Right Rev. Gene Robinson, the first openly gay bishop.

Patridge is just one of seven openly transgender clergy in the Episcopal Church and came out to his bishop, the late Right Rev. M. Thomas Shaw, in 2001. Shaw became a public advocate for transgender issues and Patridge, a chaplain at Boston University.

Patridge told the Huffington Post in 2013 that he’s interested in raising awareness for trans issues on campus. “In one sense, my being trans doesn’t matter,” he said. “In another way, I’m able to have certain conversations about the complexities of human identity with college students, who are figuring out their own identities.”
