Impostor Syndrome

Vtaf1vz.jpg

Are you transgender but sometimes feel like an imposter? In this episode we answer a listener question from Ashley who writes "How do you deal with impostor syndrome? I'm six weeks into HRT and while I still have to present male most of the time, I'm generally hopeful for the future. But some days (rarely) I wake up and ask 'What am I doing?' I know in my heart of hearts that I'm a trans woman and that transition is for me, but some times I feel like a total fake.'"

HRT in the Closet

Will taking hormones inadvertantly out you? In this episode we answer a question from Dace who asks "If I’m on HRT will it become obvious to everyone? Is it a good idea or even possible to be on HRT and hide it from some people (i.e. family and friends who I think wouldn’t be ok with it)?"

Developing a Sense of Style

4a69010c236831c48ffbc78827cdfa2c.jpg

A sense of style can show the world who you are, but how do you figure out your own sense of style? In this episode we answer a listener question from Steph who asks "I am a primarily feminine non-binary individual, born male. How does one go about developing a sense of style for one's new self?  I am trying to learn what feels right for me, but I do not have the education of someone that grew up female.  Also, do you have any advice for growing a brand new wardrobe?" We'll talk about finding different looks, keys to a robust wardrobe, and how to have fun figuring out your own sense of style. 


Check out Faith's Pinterest for ideas on business goth, and check out British TV show Fresh Meat for Oregon's cool outfits. Reddit Makeup Addiction is a great resource for learning makeup basics (and complex stuff too).  Also be sure and check out our Feminize for Free episode for some great frugal fashion ideas.
