Gender Journeys

Gender Journeys is a podcast focusing on the journeys we all must take to better understand ourselves! Hosts Josie, a binary trans woman, and El, a genderfluid individual, explore various topics related to gender in media and in our daily lives.

We made this podcast when El went on a search for a podcast focusing on nonbinary issues, and we couldn’t find one. Therefore, Gender Journeys focuses primarily on the issues that might face folx who are gender expansive and/or outside the gender binary.

You can find a list of our currently published episodes below, and can also find us on Spotify, Google Podcasts, Anchor Podcasts, Overcast, or Pocket Casts. You can also follow us on Twitter or Tumblr to stay up to date with new episodes, or if you just wanna say hi!

Music for Gender Journeys composed by Sonia Bourdaghs. You can also email us with questions, comments, or suggestions at josiewrites.qtn@gmail.com!
