Building @MyTransHealth w/ @RobynKanner — #KatieSpeakShow Ep77 02/25/2017

In brief:CN: Transphobia; self-harm/suicide

Trans Lifeline: US: (877) 565-8860 Canada: (877) 330-6366

I am SO excited about today’s show. MyTransHealth launched a while back, but has gotten a revamp AND a HUGE expansion to more cities. Co-creator/designer Robyn Kanner is on the show to talk about how and why MyTransHealth was created; she talks frankly about her experiences and what trans folx are facing under the new administration.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at Thank you!
