buzzfeedlgbt reports on this amazing app:
Speech Pathologist Kathe Perez has been working with trans clients for years. She recalls one patient’s insightful remark: “It’s that when I talk, it really isn’t a reflection of my soul – it isn’t a reflection of who I am.”
Perez has now developed Eva, the first phone app designed to help transgender users change the pitch and tone of their voice to reflect their identity.
Eva (Exceptional Voice App) is an entire suite of voice training mobile app products for both trans men and women. The app guides users through various lessons and breathing exercises.
The app’s website states it will take at least 6 to 12 months to effectively alter one’s voice. This video clip features an example “before and after” segment, having a user sample her “original” and “altered” voice:
As one user of the app put it: “Voice can be a real liability. There are definitely large parts of this country, even this state, where it’s dangerous to be trans. It can be a matter of life or death.”
At just $4.99, this app is a far more affordable option for users than visiting a vocal coach or speech pathologist. What a great resource!
mexican innovation :-)
Hate breeds hate is probably the most bullshit thing I’ve ever heard.
You know what hasn’t changed the world? Simply sitting by and hoping it changes.
You know what HAS changed the world? Revolution, protests, marches anger.
Anger and passion have changed the world and I’m going to bed damned is someone tries to silence me or anyone else by talking about “hate breeds hate”
Shut the fuck up.
You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen~!
Do you ever get rly pissed because the hunger games films could’ve told such a deep story with themes that reflect our own society’s oppressive systems
but instead they whitewashed the main leads, erased their disabilities, and pretty much romanticized the violence
The degree to which THG movies play into exactly the things the story condemns will never not be staggering to me
the whole concept of flirting is just lost on me most of the time really. whenever someone is like “oh they were flirting with you” i’m just like. what. whenever someone is like “were you flirting with them?” i’m just like. what. whenever someone is like “oh you totally were flirting with them!” i’m just like. what. what is flirting. what is going on. what. i have no idea what’s going on. what

trans women in seattle: do not see dr rob killian
he treats trans women as if they were cis men, and will threaten to take away your hormones if you disagree with him (and will go through with it!)
I HAVE SOME FRIENDS IN THIS AREA SO UM. LET’S NOT LET THAT HAPPEN. PLEASE AVOID THIS MISOGYNIST
WOW OKAY SPREADING THE WORD TO EVERY TRANS WOMAN I KNOW
look me in the eye and tell me that none of the initials in “ITT Technical Institute” already stand for “technical” or “institute”
honestly this is the exact reason i dont care to hear the “good cop” argument. the cops dont protect you. they dont protect your family or your friends. the cops kill nonwhite men, the cops kill mentally ill teenagers, the cops mock trans women at the scene of their assaults. the police do not protect you
if only?? notre dame was real?????
