Transgender Friends

golden_primary.jpg

How do trans get to be friends with other trans people? Everyone loves friends, especially friends with whom we share common experiences. But transgender people are a small percentage of the total population. How do you find good transgender friends to hang out with so you can talk HRT, surgeries, or coming out? 

Faith's book, American Transgirl, available now!
Faith met some transfriends at URNotAlone
The good trans subreddits:

r/transgender/

r/ftm/

r/MtF/

r/transpositive/

r/TransSupport/

r/transtimelines/

A Facebook group called Transgender Friends

Meetup.com's options for transgender people around the world

Do you live in Minnesota? You don't hear this often in December but YOU'RE IN LUCK.

Scrupulous research shed no light on the question of whether the Unabomber is transgender. But we did find this song.  (Warning: it's terrible.)

Chasers

Who are chasers? Are they as creepy as people say? In this episode we'll dive into the twisted world of chasers, those men who fetishize transgender women and seem to be everywhere on the internet. We'll talk who they are, why they act that way, and most importantly how to deal with them. 

Be sure and check out  urnotalone if you've never been there.  Faith found it to be a great resource back in the day.

How to Choose Your Name

hello-my-name-is.png

How do transgender people go about choosing a new name? In this episode we answer a listener question from Maddie. She asks "How did you ultimately decide on your female name? Did you create a list of names? Was it a painfully obvious choice that you'd known for years? Did you choose something that still had a connection to your male name? Or did you just try on different names until one finally stuck and felt right?"


Be sure and check out the Social Security names database if you're looking to figure out common names from around the time you were born. And be sure and check out Faith's new novel American Transgirl
