June Joplin: The Next Chapter

On June 14, 2020, our friend June boldly and beautifully came out as a transgender woman. On July 20, June was fired from her job as a senior pastor. We are building a team around June and her family as they prepare for an uncertain future. As part of Team June, you can help alleviate some financial burdens during this time of transition. Help June with the expenses of life as she moves into this next chapter of her story so she is free to do so slowly and steadily, in wholeness and with boldness.

We, her friends, have set an ambitious goal because we want to anticipate both short-term and long-term needs. We know her influence has already been far-reaching, and we trust your generosity and support will be as well. No matter what we raise, the whole of it will reach June and will speak to her of our tremendous love for her and our belief in this next chapter of her story.

If you're still reading and would like to know a little more, particularly about that ambitious goal, we believe that living as her authentic self may cost June a livelihood for some time--beyond any benefits or severance she may receive. She is a great pastor and an excellent preacher, but we know that full-time pastorates for trans women are few and far between. In fact, transgender individuals in Ontario face three times the national unemployment rate, according to transequalitycanada.com. 

In June's sermon on June 14, she preached about holding this precious pearl, and brilliantly shared her story with the world. We know that living as their authentic selves costs too many trans people everything, and June's bold life is one we are all so lucky to witness. By contributing to Team June, you are helping to make your love known by alleviating some of the enormous costs of life.
