A filmed podcast exploring Trans issues—and more—from a Trans Masculine perspective, hosted by Layne Ingram. Through real, emotional, and hilarious conversations, Layne shares personal stories, interviews guests and dives deep into the often missed, often purposefully ignored stories of the Transgender and Trans adjacent community.

Everyone is welcome —Trans, Cis and everyone in between—who is interested in important conversations around our ever-evolving and fascinating world of gender identity and the ways in which we can contribute to a Reconstructed and more inclusive society.

This project was born out of a desire to amplify the visibility of the FTM Trans experience, engage an active community of allies, and embrace and uplift our entire, beautiful Trans community.
