In today's episode of Beau my God, host Beau Bradley (he/they) breaks further into the acronym LGBTQIA+ as a part of The Queer Alphabet, with T is for Transgender. Sharing the history of the term transgender along with some of the ways the term has changed over time and of course, some statistics to match. Did you know that 1.6 Million people in the US ages 13 and up identify as Transgender? (14).

Beau then slows it down for the first in a while Beau Brief, where they share their recent covid experience, what he was up to during Pride Month, and FINALLY shares how much money we collectively raised for CHEER Seattle during the BMG Season 3 Launch Party...hint we made more than $100 per hour of the event!

Beau wraps up this episode with a list of misconceptions that he wish folks knew about being transgender, building off of last episode's list from guest, Valina Eckley; followed by our weekly affirmation.
