Chat with a real live trans person!

20


20 per session - Virtual OK

I will have a chat with you over Skype or in a public place about being trans, trans experiences, and why we are so angry about being oppressed. Because I am an educator and my goal is to increase awareness, you can ask me any of those awkward, burning questions, and I will likely answer them. If the question is rude, I'll still (likely) answer it, but I'll let you know that it is an inappropriate question and will tell you why.
I am also able to help you learn how to positively interact with trans people in your everyday life! This includes things like: what to do when you see a trans person in the washroom, or how to react to a friend who has just come out as trans! The possibilities are endless, and only limited by your imagination.

Things I will not answer, so don't ask -
1) How I have sex.
2) What my old name is.

Training & Qualifications


I am a trans non-binary person who has been on Testosterone for over a year! I have done Trans 101 workshops for universities and small activist groups in the past, and have facilitated group support meetings for trans folks.

Availability & Preferences


Evenings and weekends mostly! But I'm flexible.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

One of the things I'm most excited about is the exchange of information! I facilitate bartering as much as I can in real life, but Simbi will hopefully help with my goals even more!

About Max Janes

I'm a young entrepreneur in rural Nova Scotia. I'm trans non-binary, queer, and polyamorous! I can offer advice and information on any of these topics. I can't guarantee that my advice is the best, as... I am a flawed human being, but I can do my best to offer an alternative viewpoint on a topic or train of thought. I've lived with both of my partners for a year now, having lived with one of them for the past six years. We are a polyfidelous triad, and I'm happy to have a chat online to explain what that means! I'm a sexual educator by trade, I own and operate a bookstore and sex shop with my wife in the town we live in. We aren't trying to get rich, we just want to pay our bills while we help spread useful information around our local area. My specific interests in sexual education are around teaching consent, especially in regards to body autonomy to children. It's my belief that children who are allowed to say no to unwanted touch by adults (no matter how well-intentioned) will grow up with a better understanding that other people also the right to say no and respect others when they hear "no". I'm an avid knitter, writer of blog posts, and all-around couch potato. I'm looking to be a bit healthier since I've just graduated university and have more (i.e. any) time to take care of myself. I have three cats, who are my children and the stars of a children's book I am writing. show more
