On June 2, 2013, Old South Haven Presbyterian Church offered a program titled “Welcoming Transgender People.” The speaker was Juli Grey-Owens.


Juli is a Long Island and New York State Transgender Community Advocate. She is is a Board Member of the Empire State Pride Agenda; the New York State LGBT Advocacy Organization; Chair of the GLBT. She speaks regularly at churches and public forums about the need for statewide Transgender Civil Rights. She lives in Huntington with her wife Barbara.


In announcing this program Pastor Tom said, ”There has been much progress made in society and in the Church to welcome Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual persons into acceptance and participation in the life of our institutions. The same cannot be said for Transgender individuals. The Session offered this program as an educational event to better understand those whose identity or behavior falls outside stereotypical gender expectations.” About twenty members of the congregation and community attended.
