Ritual Transness: An Examination of Transition as Religious Ritual Performance

Transness and religion are often seen as separate experiences that cannot co-exist. Transness can not exist within religion, and religion cannot exist in transness. This website leaves behind these ideas, and attempts to combine the two by exploring how the sacred act of creation within a trans body through hormone replacement therapy can be performed as a religious ritual. I will take you through the entire process I go through when I take testosterone injections and parallel each step with a step within religious ritual performance. There will be Christian based religious imagery throughout the website, so if this is something that may be upsetting to you, I encourage you to take care of yourself and find a different website to explore. You may also step away at any point. You are important, and should value your wellbeing!
