Transgender Identities & Spiritual Traditions in Asia & the Pacific

Dates: 
Tuesday, April 2, 2013 - 6:30pm

Please join CLGS for this special lecture, Transgender Identities & Spiritual Traditions in Asia & the Pacific with Pauline Park this coming Tuesday, April 2 at the PSR Chapel.
Reception starts at 6:30pm and Lecture starts at 7pm.

Every pre-modern Asian and Pacific Islander culture had a third sex/third gender subject position for males who identified as women, and in many of these societies, such figures played significant roles in the religious and spiritual traditions of those cultures, often as shamans. New York-based activist and author Pauline Park will examine those shamanic traditions and the lessons that contemporary LGBT/queer APIs can learn from them in terms of identity formation, spiritual growth, community construction and political action.
