Join Gendercast and our former (and very first!) intern, Cat, for our group interviews with some amazing young people who are part of a bright ray of sunshine in east King County (east of Seattle) called B-GLAD. Listen with us as this group of young people, self-identified BGLADIATORS, tell you their stories and talk about work they are doing as they answer these three questions they as important topics for Gendercast and our listeners to hear about:
Jesse and Sean were glad to be part of these refreshing and honest dialogues, and we are so very appreciate of each and every one of these individual’s willingness and courage to get behind the mic and share their voice.

Gendercast Episode 24: Interview with Lucien on Trans* Idenity and Sex Work
Join Gendercast co-host, Jesse Lee, for an intimate and stigma-busting interview with Lucien, who shares his story around his trans* gender journey, genderqueer identity, navigating coming out multiple times and his sex work practice.
Lucien is a 30-year-old transgender male sex worker. He uses his work as an opportunity to observe and research gender identities, sexuality, and so much more (and to help his clients do so as well). He stumbled upon this work accidentally, although he realized that it was by no means a coincident. Participating in the sex trade offers him an experience of a lifetime, a window into the heart of humanity. It is here that he's found unremarkable truths he would never have anticipated prior to his work in this industry. Allow him to share these truths in this podcast, his observations about where the core of humanity exists on its journey toward healing gender and sexuality on this planet.
