Bonus: A Trans-Inclusive Approach to Dating

Earlier this week, we shed some light on the experience of dating as a transgender woman, and today we want to delve a little bit more into that conversation, this time from the lens of certified sex therapist Tia Evans. Tia has a private practice in which she holds space for people from all cultures and backgrounds. She holds a Master of Social Work from Fayetteville State University, a Master of Education in Human Sexuality from Widener University, and is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of North Carolina.

During our conversation, we explored ways for a transgender person to identify signs of safety in a potential friend or partner, how to establish boundaries around intimacy with a new partner, and how cisgender individuals can best support their transgender partners.
