Introduction
I am Monica Joy.  I am a Black transgender woman who identifies as queer who lives out her faith without apology.  This has been costly yet the question is, "what have you actually lost", yea, go figure.  I am highly educated and gifted so that God would be glorified in all things.  Like, none of this is easy, yet it is worthy of the faith professed.
Education
  • Starr King School for the Ministry
    Social Change, 2011 - present
  • Pacific School of Religion
    Divinity, 2007 - 2010
