In this episode, we will explore what it means to embody a pre-transition trans masculine gender identity in Singapore. From being on the receiving end of daily micro-aggressions to obvious contempt along the spectrum of discrimination. From navigating gender dysphoria to the euphoria of “passing”. From navigating sexual intimacy to the feeling of inadequacy in relationships of not being a “real man”. We discuss all these and more from the lens of someone who identifies as trans masc, but has yet to embark on the journey to transition.
