The Alternative Seminary, Transfaith,
and Germantown Mennonite Church
Invite You to
Intersectional Identities, Alternate Genders, and the Biblical Testimony of Eunuchs
Saturday, November 2
10:00 am – 12:00 noon
Germantown Mennonite Church
21 W. Washington Lane, Philadelphia
Mx Chris Paige (formerly publisher of The Other Side magazine) will present from their new book, OtherWise Christian: A Guidebook for Transgender Liberation. Drawing on 25 years of transgender-affirming scholarship, Chris will invite us to expand our understanding of the 50 explicit uses of the word “eunuch” in the Christian Bible (many of which are obscured in translation), as well as other likely or perhaps eunuchs such as Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. In doing so, we will challenge one another to live more deeply into resistance from colonized gender ideology, white supremacy, and Christian empire.
A light breakfast will be served. A $5 donation is requested to cover costs.
Chris will be selling and signing copies of their book. For more information on the book, read here
