Black background, white letters. Word “happy” is done in the colors of the transgender flag (baby blue, baby pink, white).
As long as you are HAPPY your gender shouldn’t matter to others.
People need to stop perpetuating the myth that polyamory can’t be healthy.
But also, polyamory is not for everyone, so when someone says ‘no’, they might not need you to spend the next two weeks convincing them it is a good idea…
But it ain’t the devil, either.
This week on Transition Transmission, your friendly neighborhood by and for transgender podcast, we interview Julie Vu and Amy Fox from the upcoming Transgender sitcom, THE SWITCH. We talk to them about the kickstarter, the music video, and how you can help.
We also dive into some of the ins and outs of using *gasp* transgender individuals to play transgender roles, and what their thoughts are about that.
I think Cis gendered women… they… I feel like they haven’t been in our shoes to fully understand the concept of living as transgender. I think it’s important for transgender people to have a voice, and to know that there are roles out there for us as well.
- Julie Vu
Having transgender actors playing transgender roles is a necessary step in order to get us there. So that people can see what a genuine transgender representation is, to show that transgender people, we can act… well! It’s like ‘so we really believe and respect your struggle, but we’re not going to hire you’, and that is not the message to send.
- Amy Fox
We talk a little tech, we get some background info on just exactly what ‘the hit list’ is from the show’s pilot episode, and we even hit on some personal issues when the two share a small part of their journey through transition.
I was really afraid of having my life completely turned to shit, because I’m from a pretty conservative place.
- Amy Fox
I actually came out to my parents, and my mom was furious. It was probably one of the most, like, darkest times of my life. They ripped up anything that was girly or resembled anything feminine. Any pink t-shirts were all burned, ripped. And they wanted to kick me out.
