Trans Icelandic Broad Cast
Hosts Andie Fontaine and Sæborg Ninja Urðardóttir provide much needed advice in this first episode, which approaches common misunderstandings and misconceptions about the trans community, specifically delving into medical and psychological issues. They relate information and experience in a serious, yet warm and relatable manner, and are completely open. Highly recommend to anyone looking for clarification on trans issues, especially allies. Iceland seems to be at the forefront of pretty much every LGBTQ issue, but the information presented here is useful no matter where you are on the planet. Andie and Sæborg Ninja are to be commended!
