Talk it out

WATCH: Matthew Dempsey talks with Rain, a transwoman struggling to feel safe in the dating world

For the cost of two sandwiches, I offer my best psychotherapeutic support to Rain, a transwoman who struggles to feel safe to date. In a world where trans women of color continue to have an alarmingly high rate of murder just for being who they are, it’s no surprise caution with being vulnerable isn’t exclusively because of emotional insecurity.

Though real physical danger aside, there’s also no escaping the fear of rejection all of us humans endure when looking for love. Listen in as Rain and I talk about how to stand on the shoulders of the fallen LGBTQ giants like Muhlaysia Booker who paved the way for us to live and love as bravely as we can.

In honor of Mental Health Awareness and LGBT Pride Months (May and June), new episodes will be released every Tuesday.
