TheLivelyShowwithDillanDiGiovanni2

Today’s Lively Show is one of the most fascinating and helpful conversations I’ve had on The Lively Show thus far.

In today’s episode, Dillan DiGiovanni, a health coach and TEDx speaker who transitioned his gender identity in his mid-30’s, shares how and why he thrived before and after his gender transition, the complexity of evolving language around sexuality and sexual identities, and what Dillan believes is not being accurately conveyed in the media about transgender individuals.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to hear a fascinating story about thriving authentically, or for anyone looking to better understand, connect, and communicate with people who identify as transgender.
