The Queer Life radio show Ep 75 – Charlize Veritas

Thank you to Kaiya Kramer of The Queer Life in allowing me to be a guest on her show. I only hope that something I said helped in some way.

(Click here to be taken to the recording of the broadcast.)

Talking about being transgender can be tricky as we all are different people with our own opinions. I know I have my triggers and so must others as well. I did my best to be respectful of all people while on the show.

Episode 75

I am most grateful to Kaiya for allowing me my first experience to tell my story in this medium. Honestly, I was curled up in bed the whole interview, but by the second half I felt more at ease. I really enjoy Kaiya and having a conversation with her is always refreshing. Perhaps it’s because we are both transwomen, or perhaps we’re just good people.

Thank you Kaiya!

Men vs Women – Hormones – a Transgender Perspective Huffington Post Blog

I wrote this article for hetero-normal couples in hopes that it would give them more insight into their partner’s perspective. Having been male and now transitioning to female, I’ve had the privilege of experiencing both view points and in this case, the affects of hormones on the body.

Please do not view this as sexist. I am not saying that one sex is better than another. I also am not going into the other genders as this piece is meant for cis-gender people to have an idea of how the other sex lives.

I used scientific data to illustrate commonly known issues in a jovial manner. My assumptions are not scientific of course, but hopefully you can come away from this piece with a simple way of explaining how our hormones affect us differently and a little knowledge of what the other is going through in life. This piece is intended to bring people together.
