Rose Benjamin sits down for a more extensive talk with Dorian about being & becoming a therapist & the things she see’s in us as a community is are very insightful. & we cannot wait to share this one with you!

Apologies for the unscheduled break! We here @ Beyond Gender have been in a bit of a busy mode with work for Dorian (she is a pharmacy tech) having started & training a new job but then pandemic mode hit the world & as a part of healthcare staff saw a need for overtime. Being a single mother getting used to a new @ home digital curriculum was showing it’s own challenges. As for our news host Miranda, times in lock down/at home working/unsure future have been there own set of obstacles testing many of us these days. We look forward to bringing you more episodes & news updates in the future!
