OtherWise Christian: A Guidebook for Transgender Liberation (2019) by Mx. Chris Paige is

  • a love letter to transgender communities,
  • a self defense manual against Bible abuse and Christian trans-antagonism, and
  • the beginning of a historical record of how far we have come.

Considered by some to be “the definitive compilation, analysis, and commentary on trans-liberating theology,” that foundational work is extended in a variety of ways on the OtherWise Christian blog and the OtherWise Christian podcast (where you can also leave your own voicemail to become a part of the conversation!).

OtherWise Christian (aka OC1) was the first of several books from OtherWise Engaged Publishing. Some have even talked about an “OtherWise movement.”

Meanwhile, the OtherWise Academy is taking wisdom from grassroots OtherWise communities and making it accessible to spiritual care providers. If you are new to conversations about gender in the 21st century, you may benefit from the free, on demand Transfaith for Allies certificate offered there.
