Invisible Stories Episode 13 with Tony Ferraiolo
On today’s episode I speak to Tony Ferraiolo, author of Artistic Expressions of Transgender Youth, volumes 1 and 2. Tony has dedicated himself to both promoting competent and respectful health care for the transgender community, by educating providers, and advocating on behalf of patients. He also trains educators on providing a safe and respectful space for transgender children in a school environment.
In this episode we discuss:
- Stay in the moment. Mindfulness is a powerful tool.
- Write a sentence a day, that’s how you start.
- Don’t worry about what anyone else thinks, just write for yourself. They are your words, and they matter.
- You’re not in this alone, get a support system around you. It can be a mental health provider, a writing partner, or even a Zoom writing friend.
Enjoy the episode!
