Graham Bridgeman, one of our board members, and J Mase III, an activist and slam poet, preached and led worship at the 2014 Transgender Awareness Sunday celebration. The New York Times contacted Middle Church and asked both Bridgeman and J Mase to submit video essays to complement a week-long series on Transgender rights earlier this year. Watch J Mase's video here and Graham's video here.
Andrew Rosenthal, who oversees the opinion pages at The New York Times, credited the series as having the greatest editorial impact:
“Our series on transgender rights was instrumental in persuading the Pentagon to lift the ban on transgender men and women serving openly in uniform."
Graham, J Mase, and Middle Church were a part of this historic series.
