From spending his early youth in the LA area to moving to a smaller town and the subsequent bullying he faced.

    Episode 51 The "Real Life" Test

    26:22

    Join us this week for our first Nash and C in person episode! We sat down, together, in the flesh and discussed what is commonly referred to as the 'Real Life Test or 'Real Life Experience'. While neither of us have first hand experience with this 'test'- it was the only option offered to Nash when he wanted to begin his transition in New Jersey! That and other reasons ultimately lead him to move to Seattle. We discuss what the real life test actually entails and our beliefs of the dangers it presents. We go on a bit of a tangent on the medical red tape faced by trans* folx, but it's all related- we promise. And may even lead to further episodes, stick around and find out. Comments? Questions?

This episode covers a lot of serious topics, they talk about her early life, transition and 20+ year marriage, and how transitioning impacted that relationship. They also talk about Jen's own nonbinary child and how navigating that coming out has gone.
