Transgender Priest Preaches at National Cathedral


Rev. Cameron Partridge, a transgendered priest, delivered Sunday's message at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

It's a first for the church, which is celebrating LGBT Pride Month.

Partridge is the Episcopal chaplain at Boston University. At Sunday's service, he recalled being an openly gay woman 13 years ago before choosing a male identity.

The first openly gay Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson presided at the service.

Meanwhile, the church's dean, Rev. Gary Hall, said he hopes Partridge's appearance "will send a symbolic message in support of greater equality for the transgender community.''
