029: I’m a Woman Who is Trans, but That Doesn’t Define Me


029: I’m a Woman Who is Trans, but That Doesn’t Define Me

Featuring Isley Reust


Rima & Isley both left Victorville in search of something more. Isley talks about her creative career in Hollywood, being typecast as transgender & moving forward into a different era - one where she’s seen for her art & as a talented woman vs. as a transwoman. She shared her transition with thousands on YouTube, helping many to find their true self. Now she’s ready to shift focus. We talk about men’s fear of finding transwomen attractive, being trans in the military, & dating as a transwoman.
