On June 21 the Greater Spokane Association of Evangelicals will host a community discussion on transgender bathrooms.

The organization recently sent out a survey, in which 90 percent of respondents said the church will soon need to address the transgender bathroom issue. In an announcement, the GSAE also said they have heard numerous stories of men using the women’s restroom in local churches.

At the event, pastors will have the opportunity to discuss how to address this issue with their congregations. According to an announcement, confirmed panelists who will lead the transgender bathroom discussion are:

The discussion will be from 9-11 a.m. at Fellowship Church of God, 2102 East Everett Ave. A $10 suggested donation will be taken at the door. Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP online as space is limited.
