Cuba holds first ever transgender Mass

Three transgender clergy presided over a special mass Friday in Cuba, a first for that country.

Reuters reports that pastors from Brazil, Canada and the United States wore stoles in the trans pride colors — light blue, pink and white — and delivered their sermons against a backdrop of rainbow flags.

It was a sign of the times in a country where people of faith and gender and sexual minorities alike were historical persecuted.

“Tonight has been a night of celebration of equality between all people, marking a new era for Cuba,” said Brazilian pastor Alexya Salvador. “God’s love is radically inclusive.”

The Mass was part of a conference on transsexuality and theology, organized by the Cuban branch of the LGBTQ-affirming Metropolitan Community Church.
