Ask a Trans/Genderqueer Person

10


10 per unit - Virtual OK

Do you have questions or confusion about what transgender, cisgender, genderqueer, genderfluid, agender, or any similar terms are? What life is like for a trans person? How you can make life better for a trans person you know? Wondering if you might be trans & want a sympathetic & experienced ear to listen? I'm your person!

I'm open to very basic questions, more in depth questions, personal questions, general questions, any questions! I'm not shy about telling you if I'm uncomfortable answering something, so don't worry about asking something too personal - I won't be offended by the ask, only if you get upset when I don't want to answer! One question I will absolutely refuse to answer is what my genitals looks like. If you want to ask if I've had surgeries, please tell me why you want to know or expect to be refused.

Training & Qualifications


I am transgender, genderqueer, and transmasculine. My life is my qualifications. I've been doing (untrained) support work within the queer community for 8 years and answering questions both in and out of the community for 5 years.

About Adrian Schaefer

Hello! I'm Adrian, and the other cute face in my picture is my service dog in training Riley! She’s a German Rottweiler, 1.5 years when I write this (born May 5, 2017), and just the sweetest love you’...ll ever meet. I also have my first service dog living out his retirement with me. Winky is a 10 year old, 10 pound, devoted chiweenie (chihuahua dachshund mix). As you might guess from the service dogs, I live with a few disabilities. I don't always have the spoons for it, but I am passionate about disability advocacy, particularly people with invisible disabilities and children with disabilities. I'm also passionate about advocacy for people of color, economically disadvantaged people, trans and queer people, and service dogs and their handlers and trainers. I'm white, but I am trans, queer, disabled, a service dog handler, and not in great financial shape. I love to write! I do fiction and poetry as well as largely ignoring two nonfiction blogs I have, one for advocacy and one for food and recipes. I curate two instagram accounts: one is servicesibs for my dogs and the other fodmap.foodventure for me, my diet and mental health. My days are shaped by my dogs, writing, and cooking and eating. In between all of that, I love watching tv and playing Ticket to Ride and other board and card games. (Cards Against Humanity, Dominion, Magic: The Gathering, Seven Wonders, and many others!) Want to know more? Just ask! I'm pretty open & not shy about politely telling you if I'd rather not answer. show more
