Last summer, the General Convention of the Episcopal Church approved a measure
affirming the right of transgendered members to be eligible for both lay and ordained ministry. Before the vote, pioneering Episcopal LGBT group Integrity USA
distributed copies of "Voices of Witness: Out of the Box"
to Convention delegates. The short video profiles several transgender Episcopalians, including clergy, as well as cisgender supporters.
In other Episcopal LGBT news, the Dean of the National Cathedral in Washington DC announced
last week that the Cathedral would begin celebrating same-sex weddings effective immediately.

Is Catholic-Anglican Reconciliation the only way forward?
, they're Catholics
In 1920 the Church of England - Anglicans - called for its reconciliation with the Catholic Church, and in 1925 the Catholic Ecumenical movement
sought to make the Anglicans an autonomous Catholic church with the Archbishop of Canterbury as its patriarch. It would have been similar to the Coptic and Syro-Malabarese
churches. The move was quashed by Pope Pius XI
, who ended the ecumenical movement there and then.
If conservative Anglicans chose this third way, instead of infighting over sexuality and gender issues or establishing a new model for membership, it could keep its married priests, its land, its churches, it's membership, and the Archbishop of Canterbury would still have a job.
