Raising a trans child with Tiffani Ortega


Listen to the UNcivilized Podcast:

Everyone has their own journey, for some people it may be easy and for others they have to face challenges that they never expected.

In this episode, I had the joy of talking to Tiffani Corral Ortega. She is an amazing mother and wife willing to do anything for her family. Tiffani is facing what may a challenge for most people in society; having a transgender daughter. In this conversation, we will learn how to deal with the news of having a transgender child and how to face it, the first steps to achieve the transition, the obstacles she had to go through in order for her family to accept her daughter and what she hopes for her daughter and all transgender people in the future.

This is a poignant episode that will touch your heart, and I hope it makes people understand that transgender people are the same as all of us. Please, listen to this episode with your heart open and enjoy it.
