The Naming Project in Lavender Magazine


Photos by Andy Lien via Lavender
This issue of Lavender features The Naming Project, a week long summer camp for youth and young adults who are transgender, bisexual, lesbian, gay, and others to affirm and learn about their sexual orientation, gender identity and spirituality. The digital issue features video interviews with many of the campers about their lives and their experiences at the camp. While we've written a few blog posts about it, there is no better way to get a feel of the camp and the importance it has in the campers' lives than to hear them speak for themselves. Listen to their stories to find out why the author says:

"What is found on the island is unconditional acceptance. There is enlightenment. Something is known there that has yet to be fully articulated elsewhere: Whether gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans-identifying, an ally, or questioning, you have been created and named as “a beloved child of God.”"

(Additionally, if you haven't met our Youth Representative Charlette Beckler, look for her in the video!)
