What do you do when your boyfriend decides to transition? In this episode cis girl Kath discusses how it feels when your straight male partner lets you know they're a transgender woman. What's it like going from a simple straight relationship with a guy to a gay relationship with a girl? Does that make her gay now? Does it really matter?

Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS)

FFS_Picture.jpg

Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) is a tool that some transgender women utilize. To learn more about this surgery, we'll talk to Sara who had FFS. We'll discuss the various surgical procedures, how to find a good doctor, costs involved, what recovery is like, and what results can be exected. 

 

Check out Jane Krakowski and Charlize Theron's perfect noses (at least according to Faith). Oona Chaplin from Game of Thrones, who is lucky enough to resemble our guest Sarah. Here are some pictures of nasal surgery spacers, once of which does sort of resemble a surfboard. Plus here's a website where you can see what celebrities you look like (though we make no claims as to the quality of their algorithm).

Voice can be a huge stubling block for transgender women. In this episode we answer a listener question from Kimberly who worries that voice is her biggest obstacle to passing. Kimberly also asks us how Faith feels about her voice, especially when  considering how podcasting is such a voice-based medium.

Legal Questions for Transfolk

LGBT-conf.jpg

When it comes to the law, transgender people face unique challenges. To get some insight on name changes, ID updates, discrimination, and other potentially tough-to navigate-legal questions, we spoke with our friend Caleb Arring. Not only is he a transgender man, he's also a bonifide attorney. 


Check out Caleb's wonderfully informative podcast, Beyond Gender. For US & Canadian name change resources, visit Dr. Becky. San Francisco's National Center For Lesbian Rights (NCLR) will do all the name change paperwork for you! For our Empire State listeners, here is New York State's name change oetition template. If your local DMV is being a butthead, check out the Transgender Law Center or your local ACLU
