Hi, my name is Sam Collins! Sometimes you could use a breath of fresh air from the senseless things people do online. Each week I will cover ridiculous topics such as roasting people for throwing pandemic parties, or destroying transphobic thoughts and ideas. Though, not everything has to be destroyed; I’ll be sharing the positive side of being part of the LGBTQ+ community too! The stories of hope, joy, and freedom that come with embracing inclusivity and openness. Be a part of the podcast and share your uplifting stories with me!

    The Parent of a Transgender Son

    The Parent of a Transgender Son

     I have a special guest this week (my mom) to help discuss her point of view as a mother of a transgender son. I came out when I was 15 years old and it was not easy for her or myself. We discuss questions surrounding my transition and what she went through as a parent. I think this isn't discussed often enough, and I'm glad to share it with you this week!

After that, I discuss issues with how to handle working a job without stressing yourself out too much. I also give some ways to ask for help from your family & friends. Then, I end this episode off with a tough LGBTQ+ story of someone who is "living a lie."
