Episode 32: Heterodox Humanity in Trans-Activism | Debbie Hayton


In the Hold my Drink – navigating the news and politics with a chaser of civility – and Counterweight podcast, Episode 32, we speak with Debbie Hayton, a controversial trans activist who embraces viewpoint diversity within the community. We speak about her transition, definitions of sexuality, gender and the importance of individual experiences. She shares with us her views on biology that have sparked offense within the trans community and the difficulties of navigating monolithic views of a trans identity in a complex world. All discussed with a chaser of civility, of course, and a diet Mountain Dew, a pinot noir and a beer.

To read a recap of the conversation and additional thoughts, and to see what we are each reading, stay tuned for our post Heterodox Humanity in Trans-Activism coming out on Substack tomorrow or on the Hold my Drink website now. You can also watch the conversation on the Hold my Drink YouTube page.
