Episode 15: Divorce made me confront my gender identity

Apa and Riley.jpg

Jessica asked writer and single parent Casey Brown to be a guest on the podcast repeatedly. And then the lightbulb blazed: OH. Casey doesn’t identify as a single mom. After being one of the first same-sex spouses in the country and then one of the first of their friends to get divorced, Casey found the freedom to confront their gender identity and embrace being a nonbinary trans person. Join Jessica and Casey’s spirited conversation about making your way to your true self, having gender conversations with kids, millennials’ new language, recovering from pronoun flubs (#jessicafail), being an advocate in your own home and school and (critically) why good snacks make all the difference.
