When It’s Time To Take The Makeup Off

cinderella-89.png

You know that complex emotion, when you have to change out of your real presentation and go back to your assigned presentation?  It feels worse than just changing clothes. It's so unspeakably bad/ sad/ wrong/ unfair. Kath and Faith try to come up with a name that encompasses all these nasty painful facets.

 

Big thanks to listener Xan for the question.  She recommends Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality by Sarah McBride.

 

Baby Faith looking super-cute back in the day.

 

Boy Meets Girl is Michelle Hendley's awesome movie.  Girl Meets Boy is... not.

Illegal Silicone Injections

Lots of gruesome details in this one.  But we wanted to be really sure we convinced you that silicone injections from an unlicensed practitioner in, like, a hotel room??  Bad idea. Faith already knew this thanks to TS Roadmap. We hope you did too.

Trans Wellness Conference, Philadelphia 2018

philly_trans_wellness_2018.jpg

The amazing people at the Mazzoni Center in Philadelphia have done it again. They organize the Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference every year. This is a gathering of trans and cis doctors, lawyers, therapists, scientists, professors, vendors, social workers, health insurance insiders, artists, activists, poets, writers, YouTubers, podcasters, clergy, parents, nurses, comedians, entrepeneurs, and even a witch. All these fine people come together to work towards a world with greater access to resources and acceptance of transfolks.  They present workshops, give talks, throw parties, and discuss and celebrate YOU. We describe our experience of our first year at the conference: the talks we heard (Seeing Myself in the Bible: Gender Minorities in ScriptureMy Journey With Illegal Silicone Injections, Communication With Your Cis Partner, Getting FFS and Breast Implants Covered By Insurance, The Road To Desired Vocal Identity), the events we attended, and the joy of meeting some of our listeners in person!  We hope we see you there next year!

What’s It Like To Be Cis? And Other Gender Philosophy

gender_philosophy.jpg

Our perceptions are limited by our own lived experience, but it's still good to know how other people experience the world. At least, as close as is possible. In this episode, listener Lee asks Kath "What's it like to be cis?" Another thought puzzle: what does one do whenvthey know they're different somehow, but none of the labels apply?  What then?

Reverting to Boy Mode As Needed

mulan-soldier.jpg

When your family won't accept your true gender identity, but you don't want to cut them out of your life, what can you do? Listener Melanie asks if she can be on HRT but switch to boy mode as needed. She loves her family, but knows they won't support her transistion. She asks "Is it possible to be on HRT, but revert back to boy mode passably enough for the purposes of semiannual family meetings?"

In this episode we'll answer a listener question from Catherine whose partner is dealing with some issues unique to trans people.
