Fifty Shades of Gender podcast graphic with Carrie Marshall

Episode 102

A conversation with Carrie Marshall


1 hr. Recorded on 10 October 2023. 

Carrie’s pronouns are she/her, and she is a trans woman. She’s also a lesbian, and demisexual. Find out what that means to Carrie in this episode.

We also talk about transness only making sense in the rearview mirror, how much more challenging things can become once you start transition, what the anti-trans movement has in common with the witch trials, being ambushed in the media, why everything is gendered, hope for the future, and walking unafraid.

“You don’t want to attract attention from other people…but you don’t have the knowledge or the skills to avoid attention. So what you do to try and blend in actually makes you stand out.”
