When It’s Time To Take The Makeup Off


You know that complex emotion, when you have to change out of your real presentation and go back to your assigned presentation?  It feels worse than just changing clothes. It's so unspeakably bad/ sad/ wrong/ unfair. Kath and Faith try to come up with a name that encompasses all these nasty painful facets.


Big thanks to listener Xan for the question.  She recommends Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality by Sarah McBride.


Baby Faith looking super-cute back in the day.


Boy Meets Girl is Michelle Hendley's awesome movie.  Girl Meets Boy is... not.
