Penglet ,

Yay!

I’m so excited that there’s a podcast out there discussing the relationships with trans people and their partners/families. This is something the community needs so bad right now. My S.O. and I were just talking about my transition this week and she was lamenting that there are so many resources for trans people but not many at all for their partners. Thank you for opening up like this, Shannon and Rachel! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
