Beau my God

15-10-2022 • 54 mins

In this week's brand new episode of Beau my God the Podcast, Host Beau Bradley (they/he) sits down with very special guest, Erik Wojciechowski (he/him) to catch up on their friendship, their individual experiences as trans folks and what life was like for them back before they realized they were both transgender.

The duo chats about how they met at Penn State Berks Campus, Circa 2010, when they were each  repressed in their queer identities. Erik shares what it was like to realize he was trans, what led him to jump all in with his medical transition, and how knowing someone in real life who is transitioning can be a game changer. The pair chat tattoos, exes, and how they used to watch The L Word on DVD.

Erik shares with listeners, his experience transitioning from Penn State Berks, to Temple University, to living in Los Angeles, and why he isn't looking back. Erik also flips the script on Beau, digging into what life was like for them in undergrad, who they got a tattoo to impress, and how Fall is a period of starting over and renewal. This episode is exceptionally fun and insightful.

Please read the note below from guest, Erik Wojciechowski regarding his participation in the 2023 AIDs Lifecycle Ride!!

Episode Marked Explicit for moderate cursing.

------ NOTE FROM ERIK about the 2023 AIDs Lifecycle Ride: -------


Hey everyone! Totally forgot to mention that I am participating in the 2023 AIDs Lifecycle ride this coming June! This is a charity ride that raises funds for the San Francisco AIDs Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. The ride takes place over the course of 5 days where we ride 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles. I have always wanted to take on a cycling challenge like this, and am so excited to be participating in a ride that supports those in my community! My fundraising goal is $3500. If you wish to support me in my journey, please follow the link in the episode description and click the blue “Support Our Mission” button right next to my name! Thank you for your support! And thank you for having me on the show, Beau! Hope ya’ll enjoy it!
