Casey Brown shares vulnerably about the realities of self-care as a trans person, from being misgendered to the struggle of public bathrooms, as well as some of the unique learnings about skincare, shaving, and more as they began hormone therapy last year. We learned a lot from Casey and hope you will give a listen to understand more about the realities of trans people and how to be an ally.
In this episode we talked about:
- Birch Box for Men

We love Warby Parker. Their glasses start at $95, including prescription lenses, and for every pair you buy, a pair is distributed to someone in need. Their free Home Try-On program is so convenient . . . you order 5 pairs of glasses, and try them on for 5 days with no obligation to buy. They ship free and include a pre-paid return shipping label. And on Warby Parker’s app, you can use their brand-new feature “Find Your Fit” which uses the iPhone X’s TrueDepth Camera to map and measure key facial features. If you are in the market for some new glasses, got to WarbyParker.com/selfie to get started with a free home try-on.
