Episode 8: Self-Care

Gendercast Episode 8:

Self-Care, It's not just about Gender.

We discuss various risk factors trans individuals face in addition to and as part of the stress of everyday life.  We will cover some of our methods of how we take care of ourselves in relation to, and within the context of, having a transgender identity, being a member of the transgender and queer communities, and being a human in general.  We'll cover spiritual practice, self-advocacy, educating about gender, nutrition, exercise, sleep, artistic expression, alternative practices and more.
