Public Trans is a new podcast for trans people by trans people. An informal conversation between your hosts, Mac and Ave, Public Trans talks about what it means to be trans in the public eye, taking the structure of your morning commute. Through the Morning Cup of Gender, the Commute, and the Platform, we talk about the questions we often ask each other, such as: how do you pass if you don't identify as a binary gender? How do we raise children with or without gender? What challenges does the modern dating landscape confront trans people with? What are the failings of mainstream androgyny?

These questions raise different issues for trans people with varying gender identities, and though we attempt to explore the intersection of identity with these issues as much as possible, we acknowledge our viewpoints can be limited. That is why The Platform ends every episode. The Platform is a section of our show dedicated to contributions from our community and serves as a space for trans people to contribute their voices and thoughts about our episode's topic.

Amazing

Finding & listening to this podcast made me so emotional, because I got to hear other non-binary trans people talk about so many of the unique experiences I’ve also encountered. I definitely recommend this podcast to family & friends of trans people— and all (binary & non-binary) trans folks!

Thank goodness for this podcast

This podcast has been the highlight of my past two Wednesdays and I so enjoyed the day I spent listening to the first 4 episodes. You bring in interesting media, stay on topic, have a wonderful dynamic, and incorporate great additional voices.
