Blessed Are the Binary Breakers:
a multifaith podcast of trans stories

See the podcast archive for each episode's info and transcript.

Join me, seminary graduate Avery Smith, as I interview transgender and nonbinary persons of all sorts of religious backgrounds! My goal with this series is to gather as many trans voices as possible into one treasure trove showcasing the gifts and wisdom that we can offer our communities. To do so, I talk to everyday practitioners as well as professors and community leaders of Christianity, witchcraft, paganism, Judaism, Sikhi, Islam, Shinto, and more.
