Sugar & Spice: Episode 2

We’re finally back! Episode 2 finds the “Unlikely Duo” of Bailey Jay and I chatting about current trans-related news stories, the different corners of the trans* community, The Trans 100, race, and privilege. We even take a couple messages from The Sugar and Spice Trans Advice line (leave a message anytime at 1-(405)TRANS-05), and talk about being “trans enough” and not losing your funny bone when you start living your authentic life.

Thanks to Jaye for the lovely message, to Matt for engineering, and to all you beautiful people for listening.

    Thanks for episode 2 of Sugar & Spice. It was like an hour and a half long therapy session for me. I hope I can eventually be as honest and vocal with my feelings as you two.
    Hugs.

    Great job ladies. Bailey is always fun and Jen you have given me another way to look at my lucky transition. I took for granted my white male privelege and position as a succesful middle aged trans women. I knew underneath that others did not have the lucky sperm club of my families heritage. Not that they support me because they dont but the fact that I have been lucky to be born white and was able to keep my good paying job. The fact that I live in New Jersey that has strong supportive case law supporting me doesnt hurt either. Thanx Jenna

    I love, love, LOVE having you girls in the car with me on my commute. Its like having coffee with my girlfriends every morning and getting a big dose of positive energy to carry me into my day. Don’t worry about he length of the show, it just means you are still there to keep me company on my drive home.

    I can’t say enough how great an impact you have had on my life and on my transition. I know both of you are huge fans of Kate Bornstein who I idolize as well. Its wonderful to see you making so many of the ideas and values Kate has written about accessible to a broader audience. I do hope you will keep it up for a long time to come.

    Thanks so much ~ Audrey Fey

    Jen, I loved listening to you and Bailey Jay. I listened to the entire 2-hour recording. The longer I listened, the more I wanted to hear. I was sad when it ended, but I quickly recovered when I realized that there would be more episodes to come–and that I could go back to Sugar & Spice on thirdgenderradio.com and listen to all the recordings I missed so far.

    I’ve learned a lot listening to you two talk, and I love your sense of humor and sense of justice and human decency. I also enjoyed watching Bailey’s “7 Questions”–and the first installment of “Shemalia’s Film Fiasco”. It was enlightening and entertaining. Thank you, Jen, for all you are doing for the transgendered community. Please convey my thanks also to Bailey for the work she’s doing. I think she should seriously consider radio and acting in the so-called “mainstream” media and entertainment industry. She has a lot of potential. You both have the potential of being outstanding radio hosts. I can’t speak to your acting potential, because I’ve never seen you perform. You two also make an excellent team.

    OMG! It just occurred to me! I’M NOT TRANSGENDERED–AND I’M NOT GAY, EITHER!

    Alas! I’m just a straight, half-breed Tsalagi (Cherokee) guy from the Southeastern U.S.!

    Can you forgive me? Does it count in my favor that I have dear friends who are gay and lesbian, even though I do not know any transgendered people? Would it help if I said I was fascinated by the transgendered phenomenon, and that you and Bailey have helped me to understand itand you twobetter? I do hope you won’t hold it against me!

    I think that you and Bailey are absolutely amazing! I would wish you all the best in life and huge success in broadcasting and acting, but I hear that it’s bad luck to wish someone well in show business. With that in mind, I will close with that famous showbiz closer.

    Break a leg!

    With hugs, affection, and best wishes
    Al
