How to Trans in a Red State


Yes, "trans" is a verb. In this episode, cis girl Kath asks transgender girl Faith to answer listener @JenDurbent who asks "Do you have any advice for transgender people living in Red States?" How can transgender people cope and thrive in America's Red States? These are the places where transgender people face a great deal of discrimination, harrassement, and threats of violence.
