I am a trans woman who is also a published writer and poet. I have a keen interest in queer theory and queer theology.

This is a lesson for all of us. Each of us is called to confront our biases and to question whether our behaviour builds community or builds walls. We must internalise the truth that community is rooted in hospitality and justice. We must check our own biases and demand there be room at the table for everyone.
