Trans & Nonbinary Pride Shabbat

Guest speaker Mya Byrne on the holiness and liberation in being trans and proud, plus a live performance.

“Wherever we create chosen family, we find holiness. We are the holy place. We are our own promised land.

“I chose life because I finally had a safe place to do so. … There have been hard times and hurts since, but mostly a light that finds me whenever I’m in those hard moments. I can’t quite describe it, but it keeps me going. Maybe it’s God. Maybe it’s the ancestor speaking, but perhaps—perhaps—the word is ‘love.'”

Musician Mya Byrne was the guest speaker at CBST’s Trans & Nonbinary Pride Shabbat services on June 2, 2023 / 14 Sivan 5783.
