This week, Alex Woolhouse (she/her) and Shivani Dave (they/them) are joined by Rico Jacob Chace (he/him), the director of TransActual, an organisation that promotes trans voices and advocates for trans rights. We talk about the reactions to the ‘anti-sex’ beds at the Olympics; the online abuse targeted at a certain author; Rico’s work and activism; and Alex answers a listener’s question about coming out to older family members.
