In May 2021, Megan Rohrer became the first transgender bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), in what was seen as a big victory of the LGBT communities in the United States Protestant context.



The ELCA has long gone in the direction of liberal theologies that depart from the traditional understanding of sexual ethics, marriage and human identity.



Reverend Rohrer announced she resigned from her position as bishop of the Californian Sierra Pacific synod at the same time as the presiding bishop of the ELCA, Elizabeth Eaton, announced that a disciplinary process would be initiated against her, after “additional information” about racist behaviour and other issues had “come to light”.



Rohrer was in charge of overseeing around 200 local churches and had a mandate for 6 years.
