QAC 33 – (Not) “Transitioning” As Non-Binary in Japan

apologies for this video being incredibly long– there was lots to address and i still didn’t cover everything!

in this video i talk about my current intentions re: social and medical/physical “transitioning”, why i personally don’t care for the term “transition”, why i won’t be doing anything while in Japan, why “transitioning” as a non-binary person is different from “transitioning” as a binary person and lots more. please bear in mind that this really isn’t meant as an educational video, but maybe it’ll be informative nonetheless…?
