American Heathenry and Evangelicalism display a stunning degree of overlap when examined through the lens of constructed narratives around trans identities. The similar Americanization of both groups, the common emphasis on right relation within orderly communities and family groups, and extreme political polarization exert pressure for highly congruent themes on the topic of trans and GNC people. Nor is this limited to the extreme conservative branches: trans-welcoming voices in both traditions exhibit a strong degree of thematic congruence. Examining commonly-held metanarratives offers potentially transformative pathways for narratival transition, particularly useful for those communities interested in identifying and shifting current narrative selection and use.
