In this episode of Alec Mapa: Hot Mess with Matthew Dempsey psychotherapist, Alec and Matthew have a revealing and intimate conversation about self-identity with writer and producer of the Emmy-award winning show Transparent, Faith Soloway.
Faith opens up about how the show is based on her own father’s transition later in life and yet is different than their personal story. Faith talks honestly about her own continuing ambivalence about whether or not she should have transitioned and reflects on how this struggle has impacted her life. Alec, Matthew and Faith open up about their own journey with identity and how the conversation is evolving so rapidly that we often make mistakes.
They discuss what to do when you misgender someone, reflect on having a non-trans person play the lead in Transparent, and talk through the challenge many have in accepting ambiguity and learning to be ok with not knowing.
This episode is for anyone who identifies as transgender or questions their identity in any way.
