H2O Into Wine

Blake Brockington, 17, became North Carolina’s first out transgender member of a homecoming court in 2013 when he was crowned East Mecklenburg High School’s king.
The teen, who had been rejected by his family after coming out as transgender, leading to his placement in a foster home, was all smiles after being crowned his school’s homecoming king. “Throughout my life, I haven’t always been treated equally as a male, so I’ve always wanted this, and everybody has told me I couldn’t do it,” Brockington told Charlotte TV station WCNC. “‘You are a girl,’ even though I’ve always identified myself as a male.”
The 17-year-old said he hoped that the honor could serve as inspiration for other trans students. “They can be themselves, regardless of what anybody else says,” he told WCNC. “Even though you go through some things, and have some negative encounters in your life, anything is possible. You can do anything you set your heart to.”

In case any of my followers don’t have this kind of support from home…

For the earliest Christians, coming together as a community was an act of subversion. It was the creation of a radically new ‘family’ or ‘body’ that transcended biological relationships and the established social order. It was a rehearsal for the end times, when the human body, with its physical attributes would be raised as a spiritual body, or ‘pneumatikos soma.’ In other words, church was an ‘external community of radical love.’ That is, the church was a new community that dissolved traditional boundaries that kept people apart such as biological relationships, social class, and physical attributes.

In some ways, the families of choice that queer people have created (such as same-sex and gender-variant marriages, domestic partnerships, polyamorous relationships, and broader friendship networks) can be viewed as communities of radical love. Like the early church, these communities are new ‘families’ and ‘bodies’ that cut across traditional boundaries that separate us. Indeed, the rainbow flag and annual pride marches are symbolic of this ideal for the LGBT community. These symbols mark us as a community that aspires to dissolve boundaries based on traditional identity markers.

Indeed, to the extent that the church is one body that is made up of people of many sexualities, genders, and races, we can understand the church as a place that dissolves the traditional boundaries that divide us from one another. As Galatians reminds us, there is neither male nor female in Christ Jesus. This gathering up of God’s people, regardless of sexuality, gender identity, and other differences, is the work of the Holy Spirit and is a way of returning us to the radical love that was sent by the first person of the Trinity, and the radical love that was recovered by the second person of the trinity.

— Patrick S. Cheng, Radical Love: An Introduction to Queer Theology, "Church: External Community of Radical Love"
