There are few things more policed in life than sex and sexuality. For lots of trans folks, learning to embrace themselves as sexual beings is a journey all its own.

T4T: Trans Love

T4T: Trans Love

2022-02-1046:25

We’re coming up on Valentine’s Day. This can be a difficult time for trans people, because the love our culture celebrates on that day so rarely reflects us. So this week the TransLash Podcast invites two incredible guests to talk about the power and the freedom to be found in T4T (Trans For Trans) love, sex, and relationships.First Imara talks to artist, producer and trans woman Zackary Drucker. In 2016, she coauthored a book with her ex partner Rhys Ernst called Relationship. It’s a deeply intimate look at two trans lives undergoing radical change, and their relationship with each other in that moment. Then you'll hear from author and essayist Britni de la Cretaz. Britni wrote an essay for Catapult called “How Queer Sex Liberated Me” about their journey finding sexual freedom and fulfillment through sex with other trans people.You can connect with us on social media!Follow TransLash Media @translashmedia on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.Follow Imara Jones on Twitter (@ImaraJones) and Instagram (@Imara_jones_)Follow our guests on social media!Zackary Drucker: @zackarydrucker (Twitter) @zackarydrucker (Instagram)Britni de la Cretaz: @britnidlc (Twitter) @britnidlc (Instagram)Queerkwe Designs StoreQueerkwe Designs InstagramTransLash Podcast is produced by Translash Media. Translash Team: Imara Jones, Oliver-Ash Kleine, Callie Wright, Montana Thomas, and Yannick Eike Mirko.
