TransLash's Top 3 in 2023 Rewind

TOP 3 PODCAST EPISODES IN 2023

Here are TransLash’s most downloaded TransLash Podcast with Imara Jones episodes in 2023:

1. Trans Athletes and Title IX (10K)

The Biden Administration has proposed a change to Title IX that would prohibit schools from categorically banning trans students from sports teams that align with their identity. But many advocates have criticized the new rule, pointing out that schools would still have leeway to discriminate based on exceptions around competitive advantage and risk of injury.

In this episode, Imara unpacks the pros and cons of this new rule. She speaks with Andy Marra, the Executive Director of the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund (TLDEF), about the proposal’s potential impacts on trans student athletes. Imara also chats with Melanie Willingham-Jaggers, Executive Director of GLSEN, about their public comment campaign urging revisions to the rule and the need for more clarity on its anti-discrimination protections.

First, she’s joined by Nala Touissant, founder of Reuniting of African Descendants (ROAD), who discusses her work facilitating healing and connection between trans and queer people across the African Diaspora, and the magic of cross-border cultural exchange. Then Imara is interviewed by Gender Reveal’s Tuck Woodstock, where the two discuss traveling internationally while trans, how to be an ethical tourist, and the benefits of getting away.
