Transparently Trans | Ep 07 HRT
Episode Number SEVEN of Transparently Trans covers one of the most important things in almost every transgender person’s life—Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).
If you’ve never heard the term before, that’s okay. We don’t expect you to. HRT is not to be confused with TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy) that a lot of middle-aged or older men are given to replacement lost Testosterone (although for transgender men, it is similar!)
This episode really digs into WHAT Hormone Replacement Therapy is, WHO Hormone Replacement Therapy is for, WHY transgender individuals choose to begin the process, and HOW the process can be started!
Episode 07 is the first of a 3-part mini-series about Hormone Replacement Therapy. The next two episodes will go more in depth about Female-to-Male Hormone Replacement Therapy and the specifics surrounding it!
As always, thank you all SO much for the support!
I’m looking for some feedback on this episode in particular—I’m curious if you guys like the episodes with some subtle music in the background or if you prefer the raw episodes with me just talking! Feel free to DM me and let me know PLEASE!
I’ll more than likely put up a poll on my Instagram story to help get some feedback as well, so if you guys don’t already, follow me on Instagram @daniellucasbrown
See you guys in the next one!
Transparently Trans | Ep 06 Passing
Episode Number Six of Transparently Trans discusses PASSING!
Disclaimer: I'm SO sorry for the terrible audio quality of this episode. I had some microphone issues, but they're all resolved now, so future episodes will be back up to par!
You may be thinking, "What in the world is passing? Isn't that just a verb or a term they use in sports?"
OR maybe you've heard it before, but you're not exactly sure what it means in the context of a transgender person.
OR you're thinking, "C'mon D, I already know what that means. Give me a break."
Well, whatever category you may fall under, this episode is useful for everyone. I go into not only the definition of passing, but the application and practicality of it in everyday life. I want to give you guys some real-life examples and scenarios, not just what you may see or read about online or in the media.
If this episode was informative or entertaining for you, please subscribe to catch future episodes!
The next handful of episodes will be a mini-series about Hormone Replacement Therapy, so be sure to stay tuned for that!
Thank you all so much for the support as always, and I'll catch you guys in the next one!

Transparently Trans | Ep 05 Top Surgery
This episode goes over EVERYTHING you need to know about FTM Top Surgery!
Okay... maybe not everything, but I do try to cover all of the basics.
This episode covers what top surgery is, what different types there are, how much they cost, how the surgeries are performed, and even some post-op care.
Like all of the other episodes, this information can easily be found online, but the problem that most people run into is not knowing where to look. Sometimes, even if you find the information you're looking for, it can be hard to make sense of it.
I don't claim to know everything, but educating people the best that I can about the Transgender Experience is something I'm really passionate about!
Hopefully, you took something away from this episode, and a huge thanks to https://www.topsurgery.net where I got the information from!
Be sure to check out the rest of the episodes in this series if you haven't already, and feel free to ask me any questions about anything!
I mean it, anything!
