My name is Taj.


I’m a black, transgender, Christian.  I own my faith like I own my gender like I own my race.  They drastically affect how I see the world, and, in turn, how I see God. 

I graduated from Harvard Divinity School in 2016, where I was able to think about identity in relationship to theology. Theology, to me, is a giant, open-ended question. Rather than asking “what” God is, I prefer to ask “how” and “why.” I’m pretty content with not having answers. I see no limit to the imagination, and the questions leave lots of room for imagining.

During my everyday life, I work in higher education, play music on the weekends, and attempt to fix up old typewriters.

I’m available to preach at your church, speak at your event, or write for your blog/publication– contact me.
