Gender Magic, Pleasure, and Intimacy w/ Rae McDaniel
I have been shouting from the rooftops about non-binary sex therapist Rae McDaniel’s new book, Gender Magic, since it came out. It has really helped me look past internalized transphobia and shame, ESPECIALLY as it’s come up for me in dating while trans. It’s reminded me that trans folks not only deserve basic human rights, but that we are f’in magical, desirable, and that we deserve all the pleasure in the world.
Listen to this episode to learn more about the process of writing the book, gender freedom, intimacy, pleasure, and self care. The book, Gender Magic, is gold for anyone who is an LGBTQIA+ individual and who wants to be a more informed ally/person who is lucky enough to date a queer/trans person and/or have us in your life!
Rae McDaniel (they/them) is a non-binary Speaker, Author, Therapist, Certified Sex Therapist, Coach, and Transgender Diversity and Inclusion Educator.
Rae helps audiences gain the sheer audacity to be themselves in the world through play, pleasure, and possibility.
Their book Gender Magic is a first-of-its-kind practical guide to achieving gender freedom with joy, curiosity, and pleasure for transgender and non-binary individuals, gender explorers, and those who love them (May 2023.) They have been featured in high-profile media such as The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, Time, and Women’s Health. As a sought-after professional speaker, Rae has spoken at Rutgers University, University of Chicago, University of Illinois Chicago, Soho House, The Wing, and Rachel’s Rodgers’ ROI: The Millionaires Summit.
Rae is also the founder and CEO of Practical Audacity, a Gender & Sex Therapy practice in Chicago, serving over 400 clients yearly.
When Rae isn’t educating audiences and bettering the world, they can be found drinking too much coffee, snuggling with their dog Gizmo (who might actually be a gremlin), or sipping whiskey with a good book.
