I have never heard of Jemima. Have you!?

The Public Universal Friend[a] (born Jemima Wilkinson; November 29, 1752 – July 1, 1819) was an American preacher born in Cumberland, Rhode Island, to Quaker parents. After suffering a severe illness in 1776, the Friend claimed to have died and been reanimated as a genderless evangelist named the Public Universal Friend, and afterward shunned both birth name and gendered pronouns. In androgynous clothes, the Friend preached throughout the northeastern United States, attracting many followers who became the Society of Universal Friends.

Well of course we never heard of her. Such history was never mentioned just as Asian, African, South American, Amer-Indian history is not spoken of in general education. Trans or gay history wasn't even whispered about. There is a whole world of non- Euro centric, male, heterosexual, christian, history just waiting to be discovered & taught. I don't understand why folks are reluctant to learn new facts & CORRECTED history.

I am not reluctant to "learn new facts & CORRECTED history." I found your post informative and thank you for it.

@Theresa_N My pleasure. Thank you.

Never heard of her or the Society of Universal Friends. Now The Friends General Conferance is welcoming of all genders and orientations. Other conferances are not so welcoming.

Posted by Willow_WispI stumbled on this illustration again recently. It reminded me of how wonderful it was to see the first time after coming out as trans. It's so empowering and simply innocent and honest.
