Liam and the Letters

TTFA Terrible Thanks for Asking - APM Studios Podcast Art

Liam and the Letters

Liam was raised as a girl, but from a very young age he knew that just … didn’t make sense. When he comes out to his evangelical Christian parents as a young adult — first as a lesbian, then as a trans man — it unfortunately goes exactly how he expected it to.

This episode includes anecdotes and language that disparages the LGBTQIA+ community and trans experience. We include them with Liam’s explicit permission, as they play a role in his story as a trans man. We also refer to Liam by his birth name (and he refers to himself by his birth name) at times during this episode. 

For more tips on how to be a better ally to transgender people, visit GLAAD’s resource center.
