On this pod, we discuss UK trans news, events, pop culture and how being trans is better than being anything else.

Welcome to Gender Reveal, a podcast that centers nonbinary, transgender, and queer folks. Join us as we interview LGBTQ+ artists, activists, and educators; answer listener questions; analyse current events; and get a little bit closer to understanding what the heck gender is.
🎙️ The Way We Are with Munroe Bergdorf
Activist, writer and advocate for marginalised communities Munroe Bergdorf and her guest of the week reflect on their own journeys of growth, exploring how the big, the small and the in-between events of the past have shaped their perspective today and how this impacts their hopes for tomorrow.
🎙️ Call Me Mother- Shon Faye
Author and journalist Shon Faye talks with LGBTQ+ trailblazers who have something important, interesting or enlightening to say about what it means to be queer in the world today.
In the New York of the late '80s and early '90s, this is a story of ball culture and the gay and trans community, the raging AIDS crisis, and capitalism.
📺 Dead End: Paranormal Park
Two teens and a talking pug team up to battle demons at a haunted theme park and maybe even save the world from a supernatural apocalypse.
📺 Sex Education
A teenage boy with a sex therapist mother teams up with a high school classmate to set up an underground sex therapy clinic at school.
Teens Charlie and Nick discover their unlikely friendship might be something more as they navigate school and young love in this coming-of-age series.
A group of people around the world are suddenly linked mentally, and must find a way to survive being hunted by those who see them as a threat to the world's order.
📺 Tales of the City
A middle-aged Mary Ann returns to San Francisco and reunites with the eccentric friends she left behind. "Tales of the City" focuses primarily on the people who live in a boardinghouse turned apartment complex owned by Anna Madrigal at 28 Barbary Lane, all of whom quickly become part of what Maupin coined a "logical family". It's no longer a secret that Mrs. Madrigal is transgender. Instead, she is haunted by something from her past that has long been too painful to share.
