According to Genesis, when God created human beings, “male and female he created them”. But experience suggests this does not mean that every human being is either completely male or completely female.
St David’s Uniting Church, Pontypridd, in co-operation with the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement South Wales, is hosting an evening with the theatrical performance activist Peterson Toscano entitled
“Transfigurations: Transgressing Gender in the Bible”
Drawing on inspiration from one-to-one interviews with transgender and gender-queer individuals, Peterson weaves their experiences with the stories and lives of transgender and gender-variant people right on the pages of the Hebrew and Christian scriptures.
Hilarious and moving, this one-person play deepens well-known (and lesser-known) Bible stories.
The event is at St David’s Church in Gelliwastad Road on Friday 29th May at 7.30 pm. No need to get a ticket. You are invited to make an optional donation of £3.
