Episode 131 - Juliet Mylan. Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Juliet Mylan. Juliet Mylan is a trans activist within the DSA Queer Caucus in Portland, Oregon as well as being a stand-up comedian in her spare time. She has used her social media platform to highlight the challenges that have come from being trans in society without judgment or fear, which often melds into her comedic material. Most of the material she discusses on stage is pulled directly from her own life as she navigates gender identity, nerd fandoms, transphobia, dating, healthcare, and how to use the women's bathroom as a trans woman. You can see some of her comedy here: https://youtu.be/vQ4Ss-pnuUM If you'd like to follow her on social media you can find her on facebook at facebook.com/julietmylancomedy. ********* She is also currently fundraising for gender confirmation surgery. Just before this episode aired, Juliet found out that she was losing her insurance because of the repeal in the Medicaid expansion, meaning she'll have to pay for her medical care entirely out of pocket.
