Melinda Semlys

Melinda Selmys' story of living with gender dysphoria provides a personal viewpoint from the trenches of this struggle. She advocates for a compassionate, empathetic approach to learning from and loving those in our communities who experience gender identity confusion. Suggesting that those identifying as transgender may have have experienced trauma, she encourages faith communities to provide trans people with the social, emotional, and spiritual support that they need in order to heal.
