You have to buy the hard copy version to read my piece. But i think its a first: trans issues written about seriously in this publication!
I shall await the response from the Christian Institute wih amusement: they have previouly nicked some of my reports in Pink News to fit their own agenda. Now what? Will they decide the Catholic Herald has descended into sin?
Meanwhile, i am also taking the unusual step of publishing a comment HERE within my personal blog. Its from Martin, and he says:
“Congratulations on the article in this week’s Catholic Herald. I think you may have met some of us from the Soho Masses LGBT Catholic community at the Catholics at Pride stall in Trafalgar Square a couple of years ago?”
(nope: but i did chat to the Catholic Pride contingent on the 2010 march!)
He goes on:
“We have a growing number of transgendered people attending our Masses. Our next Mass is on Sunday, 6 February,17.00, the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption & St. Gregory, Warwick Street, Soho, London W1B 5NB, with Fr. Timothy Radcliffe OP presiding. All are welcome!”
