What's it like being non-binary in a world that's far too stuck in the gender binary? In this episode we talk with our friend Avery. They explain the issues non-binary people face shopping for clothes, looking for a job, deciding to physically transition, finding language to express themselves, and fitting in in the fitting in to the LGBTQ community.

Transposeur

It's great when cis people are trans allies. But can you screw up being an ally? Will people think you're trans if you join in the fight? Will you make it too much about you? In this episode we answer a listener question from Sarah who asks "As an ally, I worry about potentially falling into a cultural appropriation trap. Am I sending a transmission through some of these choices? I don't care whether or not people in general wonder if I'm trans, but, I also don't want to end up centering myself in the process. In other words...I don't want to be a Rachel Dolezal." 

Check out wikipedia if you want to read to sordid tale of Rachel Doezal. Also here's the list of films featuring a "White Savior" narrative.  In this episode we mention Callen Lorde Community Health Center, an LGBTQ health center in NYC that provides care regardless of ability to pay. They do amazing, sorely needed work for vulnerable communities.  You can click here to donate and help support their work.

We don't always know what gender transition will bring?  Sure, we can anticipate HRT, coming out, a new wardrobe, maybe even surgeries. But what about those things that we just can't anticipate that throw us a bit of a curveball during transition? In this episode, transgirl Faith tells about some surprising things she discovered about herself and the world during transition. 

In this episode we mention Callen Lorde Community Health Center, an LGBTQ health center in NYC that provides care regardless of ability to pay. They do amazing, sorely needed work for vulnerable communities.
