    On today's podcast, we answer your questions!  Thank you all for sending your questions and trusting us to answer them!  We take on shot fatigue, how to react when someone comes out to you, how to talk to kids about gender and trans folks, and how dysphoria is different than just disliking your body.

    Selfcare

    The holidays are over, 2019 is here, and we are back in your ears! This week's episode is all about selfcare - a topic that may be of central importance after potentially spending time with folks through the holidays that may not be 100% supportive, on-board with your life, or in-line with your values. 
    Selfcare means many things (listen to the episode to learn more about what we think about selfcare and trans folks in particular) - here are some additional resource that might be helpful.
    Self-Care Strategies for Survival
    Radical SelfCare
    Trans Self-Care
    Let's Queer Things Up - SelfCare

    Religion and Faith

    Religion and Faith

    On Today’s episode, we are thrilled to get an opportunity to talk with M Barclay.  They are the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Enfleshed (https://enfleshed.com/) and the first openly nonbinary clergy of the United Methodist Church.  We talked about M’s journey to becoming clergy, how they understand God, where trans folks fit in religion, and making churches safe and welcoming for the LGBTQ community.  If you have ever thought about faith and how being trans fits with that, this is an interview you won’t want to miss.  This episode is also required listening for church members who want to be welcoming to trans folks.
    If you are looking for a church that embraces the LGBTQ community, check out church clarity.  They do the work of scoring churches on how welcoming they are. https://www.churchclarity.org/scores

    Internalized Transphobia Part 2

    Internalized Transphobia Part 2

    We’re back with the second and final part of our episodes on internalized transphobia. This week we focus on what we have each done to work on our own internalized transphobia, some suggests for ways to start working on it, and an important ally moment.
    In the episode Sam offers up Dr. Brené Brown's TED talk as a great place to start, so I went to include a link to that TED talk – and two TED talks came up, so I’ve linked to them both below. I think he was referencing the first one in this episode, but they both look important and so it can’t hurt to have links to both (clearly, I have yet to listen to this talk, but I will during my holiday vacation).

Honest and authentic

This podcast is necessary. As an ally I am still learning and this insight into a world I do not know helps me be better as a person and as an ally.

that trans guy ,

The trans stories I need

As a trans man, I looked and looked for a podcast that told stories about real trans people and talked about the things I was thinking about. Transform does just that and every episode feels like I’m hearing all the things I needed to hear when I was younger! I’m so glad this podcast exists and I love that it is for trans folks and allies too! I tell all my people to listen because I feel like it helps them to hear stories so they understand my experiences better!
