Singer-Songwriter Nick Lawrence on the Transgender Experience

Guest host Eric Jansen talks about the transgender experience with singer-songwriter Nick Lawrence, a family coach and former foster parent educator on LGBTQ topics. His album “I Am A Man,” release in June, is about his own transition. In our conversation for The Talkies, Lawrence dove deep into emotional and physical details, demystifying the transition process with passion, grace and a healthy dose of humor. (Note: the discussion includes graphic surgical details.) We also hear three of his songs, including a beautiful soulful ballad about being estranged from his daughter and a very upbeat celebratory number.
