A teacher who came out as a transgender man at a Catholic high school in San Francisco has been allowed to keep his job by the order of the nuns that runs the school.

An order of the Sisters of Mercy announced its support for Gabriel Bodenheimer, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

“This is significant for us; we did not take this lightly,” said Sister Laura Reicks, president of the 16-state region of the Sisters of Mercy West Midwest Community. “We feel because of our values, the choice was this, but that didn’t mean it was easy.”

Supporting the dignity of each person—regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identification—aligned with the order’s values, Reicks said
