A conversation with Lynn Keiser
55 min. Recorded on 7 June 2021.
Lynn’s pronouns are she/her, and she identifies as a transgender woman. Find out what that means to Lynn in this episode.
We also talk about how being trans can offer a unique perspective into human psychology, the evolution of relationships and attraction, facets of identity, leaping into the unknown, and doing as much – or as little – as you need to be happy.
“I’m more open; I talk ten times as much as I used to; I know ten times as many people as I used to. Because I’m confident; I don’t have to hide a major part of myself any more.”
TRANSCRIPT [expand to read] – COMING SOON
Lynn Keiser is a transgender woman who identifies as female, using She and Her as pronouns but acknowledging her upbringing and previous experience being perceived as male. She is in a long term relationship with her gay husband, and had – prior to transitioning – lived as a gay male for many years. Lynn is a professional in technology, located in Silicon Valley in California USA, and has for some years acted as a mentor to younger transgender people who seek advice on navigating the world while changing their external presentation to match who they are inside. She has been interviewed by the Advocate LGBT publication, as well as a San Francisco based community outlet. Lynn is also a volunteer book with the Human Library, which allows “readers” to check out a “book” and read them – i.e., have a candid conversation with people who are often misunderstood in order to counter fear of others who are different.
