In celebration of International Trans Day of Visibility 2021 Kamloops United Church offers this recording of our member Melanie telling her story on March 31. It was Holy week and in this Easter season we are grateful to hear this WHOLLY HOLY STORY. Melanie’s story is a triumph of the spirit. On her journey to love there are some difficult dark truths that are shared. It can be hard to hear and harder to have lived through. If you need support, we invite you to reach out. You are not alone.
