I have long been a fan of Sister Paula who has been a long-time LGBT activist. She is a Christian and has been out as a transgender woman since the 1960's.

Without a doubt, she has had a fruitful ministry showing the freedom ALL people can have in Christ, and her intelligence and verve make her an inspiring and delightful person from whom to learn and receive a blessing.

Please click on this link to access the June 26th podcast and hear a truly liberating message from Sister Paula.

If you'd like to see a brief video of Sister Paula talking with Rev. Troy Perry, who founded the Metropolitan Community Churches in 1968 that have a ministry to everybody, especially to LGBT people, please see the video below:

I guarantee you'll be blessed by watching both videos!

Here are her Youtube videos some or all of which you might be interested in seeing as well.

Jerry, I watched SisterPaula's podcast a half dozen times. I watched the interview with Try a couple of months ago.

I listen to or watch her podcasts every week. She's been a blessing to me and countless others. I truly believe that many trans people are living today because of her clear and concise message.

Hi genevieve: I'm so glad you, too, have been blessed by this courageous woman! And I agree that she has saved many lives that without her and her wonderful ministry would have been needlessly unhappy and unfulfilled. And she may well have prevented a number of suicides because of the ignorance and hatred of all too many professing "Christian" clergy and others. She is a blessing! Best wishes, Jerry.
