For even more books, twitters, websites, podcasts, and videos by and for trans Christians than what is listed above, I highly recommend Austen Hartke's resources page!
Two other sites I recommend: transfaith and transsaints. The Reformation Project, Queer Grace, Believe Out Loud, and FaithfullyLGBT are also great as general LGBT faith resources.
