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.
