Starr Austin serves the UU Fellowship of Huntington, NY as their Director of Lifespan Religious Education. She considers the work of religious education a ministry shared by the entire congregation; RE is everybody’s business. She brings to her work a zest for community building, spiritual practice, and what she refers to as a “geeky love of Unitarian Universalism”.

An advocate for gender identity and body positivity, Starr has created and led workshops on transgender and genderqueer identity, creating safe spaces, and supporting non-binary gender expression in children and youth.  Starr co-founded the Bare Beauty Project in 2010.  Bare Beauty Project works with individuals to combat body hatred through coaching, spiritual practice, and photography.  Starr has a deep belief in the right to self identify and the freedom of self expression as fundamental human rights.
