It's a Thing: Living Transgender

This week's episode is one that's close to my heart, one of the humans I love the most is speaking her truth, a truth that some humans feel very strongly about!

A truth that divides, a truth that creates an 'us and them' mentality, but a truth, none the less.

Transgender - I am sure you have an opinion, whether it's in regard to sports or bathrooms or dating, you have an opinion, but what if that headline, social media post, 'topic' was a living, breathing human, would you feel differently?

My friend Cher Pete is transgender and is answering all of the questions, from surgeries to childhood and dating.

Also - she's raising money for a life changing procedure, and if you can, you can help her become the the woman she was always meant to be.
