Every trans person has their own transition story. In this episode, our guest Kyle, shares with us how he decided to transition into a male body and how this affected his life, his personality and his emotional health and well being. Our current society is still plagued with violence against trans people, gender fluid persons, and anyone who does not abide by the traditionally accepted "man" or "woman".
Some of the topics we discuss in this episode:
-How did Kyle realize he wanted to be in a different body
-How did he come out to his family
-What are the legal struggles in changing your sex and gender
-How does this affect your romantic relationships
-How does being trans affect your career and job applications
-Does transitioning to being a trans man solve all the problems? Or is there more to deconstruct?
It's important to create safe spaces where we can openly discuss the realities experienced by many people who feel like they don't fit in the prescribed sex or gender assigned to them at birth. This is precisely what our podcast is about and we're proud to share this episode with you. Please share it with a friend and raise awareness on what trans people go through. Let's schmooze about this more often!
