Finding faith

Nashville is blessed with an abundance of affirming churches and synagogues. Within these communities of faith, you will find Baptist (yes, I said Baptist!) Methodist, Presbyterian, Jewish, Unitarian, United Church of Christ, and many others.

Some are considered mainly GLBT communities, and others are considered mainline churches who accept and affirm the GLBT community. Some will have contemporary praise and worship, and others will have more traditional worship.

Regardless of what church or synagogue is a good fit for you, you’ve got plenty to choose from! So get out there and see what you can find!  The following is a list of Middle Tennessee churches and synagogues in which you can visit and feel accepted along with their websites and service times.

Nurse Practitioner Ari Kravitz

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
