This is the second conversation with Victor for the podcast – you can find the first one from August 2021 (episode 59) here if you’d like to listen to that first.
Another conversation with Victor Martinez
TRANSGENDER, NON-BINARY, PANSEXUAL, NEURODIVERSE, ADHD
1 hr. Recorded on 7 June 2022.
Victor’s pronouns are they/them, and they are transgender and non-binary, as well as pansexual, neurodiverse, and ADHD. Find out what that means to Victor in this episode.
We also talk about being out as a trans person at work, having a different understanding of the same labels, normalising gender diversity in society, body dysmorphia and gender expression, transphobia in the media, unlocking aspects of identity, and the evolution of awareness.
“I think sometimes it’s even harder to explain non-binary as opposed to being a trans woman or a trans man, because I have to explain to them something that they are even less familiar with, which is a person who doesn’t want to identify as a man or a woman at all.”
TRANSCRIPT [expand to read] – COMING SOON
“A Non Binary voice who tries their best to spread a positive outlook on LGBTQIA+ community while also furthering their understanding of the community and themselves. They study as a music major hoping to improve their singing voice and be a musician one day.”
