Sex Ed Before Bed | Episode 4 | Chronicles of a Trans Life

Rebecca Nava

Wes Heney was born female. That is, he had the anatomic composition or body of a person most people would see as female. As Wes reached puberty, he grew breasts that he detested. He dressed like a guy and wanted to be treated as such. He sensed a profound disconnect between his body (anatomic sex) and who he felt he was – his gender identity.

In episode 4, Wes tells the unforgettable full story. I ask some basic questions about:

What’s it like taking testosterone?
What kind of stigma did you encounter?
What was your transition process?

His answers are intimate and taught me a lot of things I didn’t know.

 

The theme song is Little Lily Swing by Tri-Tachyon. Edited for time and volume.
