A new 3-episode bilingual podcast series launches today to celebrate the International Day of Transgender Visibility. It’s called Transitioning In Translation, or Traduzindo a transição in Portuguese. Each episode will be available in both Portuguese and English.
The series tells the stories of Brazilians Jakob and Wendlle and their experiences with gender transitioning in Australia, also a special episode with psychologist and specialist in gender transitioning, Patricia Martins.
For Wendlle, the podcast is actually the first step towards discussing their transition with their family. This is one standout quote for me; “I asked my sister to show (my family) some videos about transgender people, non-binary people just to get started but I think this interview with SBS might be a first step for us to have this conversation in the future.”
