Hey all! I'm trying a different format for this podcast. Instead of one topic, I am splitting the episode into two separate topics (much like my other podcast, Paved With Good Intentions). Hopefully you enjoy it!
Trans visibility is growing. More and more, news stories pop up that focus on real life trans individuals and their unique situations. But visibility is also growing in pop culture, with more realistic depictions of trans characters on television and in movies. In the first half of the episode, we look at how visibility is growing in the media and some of the effects of that. There is one debate that comes up about trans actors, or more appropriately trans character roles given to cisgender actors.
In the second half of the episode, I respond to a fan question about my experience in the first year of HRT. While my experience is unique to my situation, some of it may resonate with the experiences of others. Conversely, it does not cover the full spectrum of experiences trans individuals can encounter during their first year of HRT. But any information is good information!
