A mum of a transgender child
I have to say the use of gender fluidity and non binary often confuse me. I am only 17 minutes into the first episode and have had several aha moments. What a powerful podcast. I also love Kit’s wisdom about labels - when they are useful and when they are not. I can’t wait for the next episode.
