Male-to-female transgender persons are individuals who experience discomfort with their biological male gender and identify instead as women. The term "transgender" is an umbrella term that includes persons whose gender identity, expression, or behavior does not conform to societal gender norms associated with sex at birth. Transgender persons experience a gender identity that differs from their anatomical sex; they may seek to alter their physical appearance by undergoing cosmetic procedures, using hormones, or having sex reassignment surgery. Others may not choose a physical transition but rather express their gender identity through varied presentations and behaviors. These persons are also described as "gender-variant" and terms used to describe them include male-to-female, transsexual, transvestite, cross-dressers, drag queens/kings, gender-queer, and others.

The continuing and unrelenting epidemic of HIV/AIDS that is currently ravaging the globe and especially the continent of Africa as well as our African American communities here in the United States and in the Caribbean challenges contemporary theologians,ethicists and members of faith-based organizations who take seriously the healing ministry of Christ. The rudiments of the thoughts and processes that led to this book began though the main author’s encounter with the Catholic Theological Society by June of 2005. This book of knowledge and enlightenment was therefore written
specifi cally to address some of the issues raised by persons working in the Lord’s Vineyard through faith-based organizations.
