Thank you friends, it was beautiful to be in community with you this morning, and a humbling honor to serve, as always. #gratitude
Greetings good folks - I am writing you from Charlottesville's UU congregation as one of the minor organizers of the local effort to support legislation to authorize local control over monuments and memorials. There is a rally next Wednesday that you might find of interest. Please feel free to share this message as widely as you wish.

There is a statewide coalition called "Monumental Justice" that is organizing this rally and gathering support for the local control legislation. There will be a statewide call next Monday at 8 to discuss the effort. People can message me if they are interested in being involved statewide.

The rally information is below.

MONUMENTAL JUSTICE RALLY
Wednesday, January 8th @ 2:30 pm
The Plaza on the State Capitol Grounds
Richmond, Virginia

This is a rally in support of the "Local Control over Confederate Statues" legislation being introduced by Delegates Sally Hudson and Jay Jones that would give localities the authority to remove Confederate statues from public spaces.

A NOTE ON AUCTION BIDDING!
Evening all! The Auction is live and bids are coming in (see links below). There is an option when placing bids called "Proxy Bidding". If you leave this box checked when you place your bid, the system will auto increase your bids up to your limit. For example, an item's current bid is $10. You bid $100 - the system will set your bid at $11 (assuming a $1 increment in bids) and then continue to raise you bid if you are outbid by someone else until it hits your max! The page will only display the current bid and not your "proxy" amount.
If you are bidding against someone with a proxy bid set, you'll continue to get an "Out Bid" notification until you surpass their proxy amount!
Happy Bidding!

Learning new vocabulary and identities can be difficult, but many of these words actually apply to you! So for this Trans Day of Visibility, take a little time to acquaint yourself with these terms so that you can be the best, most supportive ally possible.

As we learn more about each other, sometimes it's helpful for us to create new vocabulary to describe ourselves and find other folks who are like us in s*xuality, romance, gender, or body.

We're so proud of the community work that went into creating this poster.

You can download all the files for printing in your classroom or office here: https://wannalearnmore.com/poster

If you want to be part of the wonderful community that created this graphic, come visit us You Might Wanna Learn More About Trans People.

The full text of the poster is below:

--- Full Text ---

Image description and full text transcript of the infographic poster:

❄️Image description: A cartoon human is centered on a poster. The human has a blue cartoon brain in their head, red/yellow flames in their chest, a pink heart in their chest, a green star where their legs meet their torso, and an orange aura surrounding them. There is a thought bubble over the person’s head with a question mark inside. The blue brain points to a blue section titled “Gender Identity”. The green star points to a green section titled “Assigned Gender/Sex At Birth”. The orange aura points to an orange section titled “Gender Expression”. The red/yellow flames points to a yellow section titled “Sexual Orientation”. The pink heart points to a pink section titles “Romantic Orientation”. There is a light purple box with a dark border at the bottom with extra text and a QR Code. Each section title includes a small image of a cartoon human with exclamation points over their head, and the light purple box with extra text and a QR code has a larger version of the same cartoon human with exclamation points on top of the box. The rest of this description is a transcript of the text on the poster.

❄️Gender Identity: A person’s sense of self in relation to gender

Transgender: Person is not the gender assigned at birth

Cisgender: Person is the gender assigned at birth

Metagender: person identifies as neither cisgender nor transgender

Non-Binary: Person is neither exclusively a man nor exclusively a woman. Non-binary people may or may not identify as transgender

Agender: Person does not experience a gender

Gender Fluid: Identity that varies over time (man, woman, or any other identity)

❄️Assigned Gender/Sex At Birth: The gender/s*x assigned at birth based on a person’s ge****ls.

Assigned Male At Birth (AMAB)/Assigned Female At Birth (AFAB): Generally, this assignment is made based on a visual assessment of the baby’s genitalia

Inters*x: A naturally occurring variation of s*x characteristics, reproductive organs, and/or chromosomes that do not fit the typical definition of male or female (although many inters*x people are assigned male or female at birth).

Note: Assigned gender/s*x at birth is different than s*x, which is based on many variable factors

❄️Gender Expression: How a person presents themself (such as style, actions, demeanor, and more)

Feminine: Expresses qualities and characteristics typically associated with femininity

Masculine: Expresses qualities and characteristics typically associated with masculinity

Androgynous: Expresses both typically feminine and typically masculine qualities ambiguously, or expresses typically neither

Note: Gender expression may change over time or in different situations

❄️ Sexual Orientation: Who a person is s*xually attracted to

Heteros*xual: Sexual attraction to people of a different gender than your own

Homos*xual: Sexual attraction to people of a similar gender to your own

Bis*xual: Sexual attraction to people of more than one gender
Pans*xual: Sexual attraction regardless of gender

As*xual: Experiences little to no s*xual attraction

Demis*xual: Experiences little to no s*xual attraction until a close bond is formed

❄️ Romantic Orientation: Who a person is romantically attracted to

Heteroromantic: Romantic attraction to people of a different gender than your own

Homoromantic: Romantic attraction to people of a similar gender to your own

Biromantic: Romantic attraction to people of more than one gender

Panromantic: Romantic attraction regardless of gender

Aromantic: Experiences little to no romantic attraction

Demiromantic: Experiences little to no romantic attraction until a close bond is formed

❄️ Light Purple Box with dark border:
These definitions are commonly accepted but not absolute.
Some of these terms have some overlap. That’s okay! Just describe yourself with whatever terms you’re comfortable with, and respect the terms other people use for themselves.
There are so many more identities, orientations, expressions, and definitions that aren’t shown here. Ask your teacher for more resources or visit the link in the QR Code if you have questions!

A Prayer from Victoria

Like snow on snow in winter now,
or dust drifted into corners, cumulus accumulation
of fluff and fur and air,
our losses pile like laundry in soft heaps on the soul’s floor.
Sometimes you hardly notice, just kick it all out of the way.
Sometimes the mountain’s insurmountable,
loss on loss of ordinary and essential gestures:
unmasked smiles and laughing,
handshakes, hugs, a kiss on the cheek from the guy down the hall,
embraces spontaneous or long-awaited and much needed,
the brush of a hand on the hymnal you’re holding in church,
the warm living skin of a warm living body next to your own,
reminding your own that it is alive and electric.
Loss on loss, like dust in a pile:
the rhythm of the day, the week, the seasons and the year,
loss of income, friendships, school,
the dead. My God.
And equilibrium and balance, certainty, stability,
and slowly, slowly,
sanity, as one more tiny thing proves to be too much.

In Lent the people give up what they cherish-
chocolate, Netflix, beer and fries.
The intention was to honor Jesus’ sacrifice,
to prepare the soul and body for the greatest loss of all,
to banish the distractions of this earthy, lovely life,
and sternly, sparsely, think on God alone.

This year we have given up enough.
It’s been Lent now for eleven months already!
If you need more chocolate,
rest, Doritos, trashy novels, ice cream, bacon, DisneyPlus,
take it - and be blessed. These are our bodies, broken
and still breathing.

Be blessed, beloveds.
You have given up enough.
Let Lent lean toward joy this year,
toward grace and mercy, sweet indulgence.
This prayer is for scraps of happiness, love of life, soul-sustenance,
in whatever dusty, holy corner you can find it.

Sunday, January 17 at 10 am Online.

[01/07/21]   We, the people of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Loudoun in Leesburg, VA unequivocally condemn the terrorist attack on our US Capitol on January 6, 2021. We condemn any and all attempts to delay the certification of or to overturn the results of a democratic election. We witness and condemn the hypocrisy of our militarized and white supremacist policing system, which reacts with extreme violence to people of color peacefully protesting, while allowing white supremacists to commit literal domestic terrorism against our government.

As Unitarian Universalists, we affirm and promote the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.

As our UUA President Susan Frederick Grey has said, "As Unitarian Universalists, it is important to remember that our commitment to democracy is not just political or moral, it is fundamentally theological. It grows from our affirmation of the inherent worth and dignity of every person and the Universalist understanding that we are all part of one creation, interconnected. These theological values of human dignity and interdependence are why we know everyone needs a voice in the matters that affect their lives."

We are prepared to join in collective, moral, faithful action to defend our democracy. We call on all of our country's leaders and institutions to do the same.

In faith, love and purpose,
Rev. Alice King, Minister
