The aim of this project is to turn my doctoral dissertation  which can be viewed at     http://etheses.bham.ac.uk/5936/   into a book. I have a collaborator in the respected author and activist Rev Dr Christina Beardsley. We have a publisher but need to provide guarantee the sales of 250 books ( at £10 a book) before we can progress further.

The aims of the book  are 

a) to give the results of the first ever research project into transgender people's spirituality.

b) to give a framework that will help people in churches to understand a transgender person's physical and  faith journey in helpful ways to  minimise discrimination and misunderstanding.

c) to give suggestions how transgender people  and those who love them can be supported before, during and after their transition.

d) to provide ceremonies to mark the stages in a transgender person's journey.
