A Trans History


This episode of Sexplanations presents a version of history written by Dr. Doe and Blake Bonkowski. It is not comprehensive or cross-cultural but it does touch on many of the documented events and experiences which influenced how we got to 2018. My hope is that we create a history with more visibility, awareness, and advocacy; less discrimination, hatred, and violence. I hope we all stay curious about the millions of other voices and timelines contributing to trans history.
