A new theology of survival for the Black trans community

J Mase III is a poet, an educator and a self-taught theologian. He is also a black trans man whose work is focused on the intersection of faith and social justice. This has led him, along with Lady Dane Figueroa Edidi, to create a new theology, the tenants of which are laid out in the Black Trans Prayer Book, an interfaith project that affirms the spiritual realities of Black trans people.
