Transgressive is a podcast about all things transgender, genderqueer, non-binary, intersex, and some things sexuality, too! Transgressive aims to make space for the very real lives of trans folks and serves as a platform for storytelling, resource sharing, and activism in its many forms. Every other week, Lindsay and a guest explore topics like coming out, socially and medically transitioning, mental health, loved ones, activism in the current political climate, how cisgender folks can be better allies, and more!
I'm Lindsay, the host of Transgressive, and a licensed clinical social worker specializing in gender therapy in Austin, Texas. I'm a queer, cisgender woman that's passionate about social justice. I often hear clients describe not feeling "trans enough" because their story doesn't fit the dominant cultural narrative. There clearly aren't enough narratives out there about what it means to be trans. I started Transgressive to help fill that gap by interviewing trans individuals and their loved ones so their voices and stories can be heard! I'll also be chatting with gender therapists, medical professionals, and trans activists about best practices, what to look for in a gender therapist, and how the heck to get hormones!
I've got news for the world, there's no one right way to be trans!
