Transgender Halloween Adventures

Halloween.jpg

Halloween can be an amazing time for transgender people. It can provide an opportunity to dip your toe into coming out and to present how you've always wanted to without fear of judgement or rejection. But, Halloween can also be a time for inadvertently offensive costumes. In this episode we answer a listener question from Shayla, who asks about how to do a feminine-presenting costume without accidentally offending the transgender people in her life. We'll also share some listerner stories about their own Halloween adventures.

Street harrassment and unwanted sexual advances are awful. In this episode we answer a lister question from Amy who asks "When it comes to creepy guys hitting on you, how do you deal with the dual feelings of 'Omg, maybe I'm a woman now?' with 'Omg, guys are fucking scum!'" We'll talk harrassment, unwanted sexual advances, and tips to help keep you safe from this awful type of social interaction.

Social media can be a tricky place for transgender or queer people. This week we answer a listener question from Rachel. She asks about running multiple accounts on Facebook when you're not fully out or using a new name when you've not changed it legally. So how are transgender people to navigate Facebook and other social media avenues? 

Make sure your Facebook profile is 100% private and that no one can tag you without your permission. Also be sure to follow Faith on Instagram and follow the Gender Rebels on Tumblr

Coming Out in a Tough Situation- featuring Brooke Guinan

Woman_on_Fire_Lieutenant_Guinan_brooke_church.jpg
Coming out is hard, and a non-supportive situation only makes it harder. In this episode we answer a question a lot of listeners have asked: How do you come out when your family, friends, co-workers, and neighborhood may not be supportive? To get some insight from someone who did just that, we talk with Brooke Guinan. She's the first openly transgender firefighter in the FDNY, the New York City Fire Department. We'll learn about this third-generation firefighter who grew up steeped in tradition, and how she found the courage to come out and be her true self. 

Be sure and check out the new documentary film, Woman on Fire, which tells Brooke's story. It was awarded an Official Selection at DOC NYC.  We saw an advanced copy and this movie is funny, heartfelt, and moving. Check out the trailer here or watch now on iTunes

Also, Brooke mentioned GSA, Gay Student Alliance Network, which is a student-led organization dedicated to helping LGBTQ junior high and high school students.  They support each other and provide safe spaces to be who they are.
