CHANGING PERCEPTIONS

From THE STAR:

A photographic exhibition celebrating positive images of the trans-gender community has opened in Sheffield.

The Reverend Sarah Jones, who attended college in Sheffield as a mature student and secured the A-level results which landed her a place at Oxford University, is also the Church of England’s first ever trans-gender priest - and is back in the city where she studied to launch the new ‘Living My Life’ project on display until Monday February 28 at The Workstation on Paternoster Row. She admits it is not an easy task - but the Reverend Sarah Jones is passionate about the cause. Taking part in public events comes with price, the Anglican priest admits.

“It is hard, and it does cost me emotionally,” she said. “But it is a cost I am prepared to take because other people have had that cost before me.”

Sarah is a priest of the parish of St Mary’s Church in Ross on Wye in Herefordshire.
