GAYRHS Episode 9, aired on 5/04/17. I didn't stay totally on topic today, but I talked about Chechnya, the AHCA, Kim Davis, the Religious Freedom EO, and more. I also explained a bit on my gender neutral accommodations project.
This is not okay. The AHCA is counting transgender identity as a pre-existing condition, making trans related surgeries not covered under insurance. And that is inhumane. One, they use the term 'transsexualism', which is inaccurate. Transgender identity is not related to sexual orientation. My sexual orientation is no way related to my gender identity. Transsexualism/Transgenderism … Continue reading Trans People and the AHCA
Just realized I never uploaded this. Oops! I go really fast, so I'm providing my script.

Yesterday, I got a job. Next week, I take Driver's Ed. Next month, I turn sixteen. Throw in a few other things that have happened this week. I'm growing up, and quite frankly, it's terrifying. In my head, 2007 was still three years ago. My Chemical Romance is still a band. One Direction's hot new single … Continue reading Growing Up
Wow. This episode is well over an hour. Interview with Cory Champeon. This will piss off a lot of my friends, as it reveals the more conservative side of me. To clarify: I said gender is not a social construct, and I can't remember if I clarify it or not, but to explain, the gender binary … Continue reading GAYRHS – Episode 7 (Extended)
Barry Manilow officially came out today at the age of 73, and like most people, when I saw his name trending on Twitter, I assumed he died. Nope! I'm super happy for him that he has come out and reveals he's been with the same partner for 39 years. Ordinarily, when a celebrity comes out, … Continue reading No, You Didn’t Know They Were Queer.
A little video I made yesterday for Trans Day of Visibility. Shoddily edited, bad video camera, just word vomit, but still nice.
Originally aired on 3/30/17. Sorry if I pause randomly! I run out of breath super easily and it's weird. Remember you can email me at email@example.com, DM me on any social media, leave a comment here, or just ask me in person about any LGBT+ topic! Outline Current Events A bus fueled by hate is … Continue reading GAYRHS – Episode 6
Here's GAYRHS Episode 5! Be sure to listen live on Thursdays, 2-2:30 PM. Next week's episode is an important one, but for now, listen to my rambling. I actually ran out of content today because I talked way too fast. So I have the outline, but it's missing the last part of the episode. But … Continue reading GAYRHS – Episode 5
Can you believe it's been a year since I made the best pun of my life? I can't. First, I want to thank my parents, especially my dad, for fighting the insurance company to get me this surgery. Three appeals over the course of six months took patience I could only dream of. You guys worked so … Continue reading One Year Post Top Surgery
