My Second Coming Out…

Why do churches hate my existence but turn the other cheek for the child molester? Abusing rapist?

Why do churches forgive child porn producers who are connected to their churches so quick like cover it up almost then discriminate and bash an LGBTQIA+ person?

Why do churches allow affairs? But, if the gay couple wants to get married because they genuinely love each other they get outcasted and thrown out like scum.

Why do churches allow abuse to wives and tell them to just pray it out of their husbands? But, freak out when transgender people use the proper bathroom?

Churches have it all wrong and if they are in fact the bride of Christ, this Christ is an abusing, child molesting, racist, misogynist, bigot that I do not wish to have any part with. I have been going back and forth lately on a few things and these last few articles floating around about the molesters were it for me. I am an atheist and never looking back at my Christian roots.

My name is Sasha Adele Braden, a transgender woman, who is queer and living in freedom. I knew I was transgender at the age of five because my development just seemed off so I had an inclination something was very wrong. I was locked away because of shame and I decided that I was going to take my truth to the grave and never open up to anyone because I was full of fear. That all changed February 14, 2018, when it all came out. I’m free. I’m alive. I’m learning that life isn’t just eating, sleeping, having sex, and going to the bathroom but it is so much more! Learning that has been a blast! I am also co-managing a grassroots organization called, “REFLECT” and it is all about trans and nonbinary expression through community while being able to completely lean on allies. I am super stoked to be doing this and being a safe place for the queer community of Austin, TX. Look up my Facebook page “REFLECT” for more details. With all of that said, welcome to my life. I welcome all types of people and welcome all types of dialogue. So, drop a comment or two on a post every once In a while​ this blog is mainly just a way to let go of trauma from my past. Expressing it has helped me overcome things I thought I was never going to be able to overcome and I’m living in freedom for the first time in my life.
