In this episode, I speak with Terrence Rodriguez who faced struggles, isolation and loneliness through his journey as a transgender man.

Terrence’s story of resilience stems from his desire for community. By recognizing the struggle that many LGBTQ youth go through, he launched a social hub and advocacy group in Toronto called, REXpride. It is a safe space for them to gather, make friends, be among their peers and feel open and confident in their identity. If there’s one thing we can take away from this episode it’s “you’re not alone”. There is always a community out there who understands you and wants to help you. And even in your own journey through hardship, you can take your experience and do something positive with it.
