Episode #1082: In the first half of the show, Allison and Jamie discuss Jamie’s latest video project and THE GREATEST PHOTO OF ALL TIME. Then, Parker Marie Molloy (@ParkerMolloy, parkthatcar.net) joins the show to discuss why she left Thought Catalog, and to give survival tips for trans youth. Also, Ray Rice, Janay Palmer, domestic violence, and why the NFL doesn’t care almost half its audience are women.

Parker asked we post the following advice to trans youth regarding employment:

Unemployment is a huge issue in the trans community (Side note: I always feel absolutely-fucking-ridiculous saying “the trans community.” I mean, what does that even mean? I don’t know, I’ve always felt as though that’s an odd way to group people. Like, could you imagine trying to make any sort of all-inclusive statement about how “the cis community” feels about something? Anyway, I digress…). With unemployment among trans people at double the rate of cis folks (and it’s even worse for trans people of color), finding stable work is far more challenging that it really should be. Sadly, this struggle sets off a chain of events, adding to issues of poverty, homelessness, HIV infection, general health matters, likelihood of being assaulted, and so on.

My advice for anyone looking for tips for finding work is to reach out to other trans people in their area. While I’m not sure there’s really such thing as a “trans-friendly” business, as, in an ideal situation, the business would simply treat you like a normal fucking human being. It’s worth perusing Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index to see which companies voluntarily have gender identity employment protections (and those that offer trans-inclusive health care). A high score on HRC’s CEI isn’t by any means a guarantee that a business is actually cool with trans people (see: this example of an AT&T employee facing discrimination hell — but hey, they have a 100 score!), as things may be a certain way at the corporate level, but much more challenging for entry-level employees.
As I mentioned during the interview, Chicago House has the Translife Center, an awesome project designed to help trans people receive job training, housing, and other forms of support. If you live in a major city — Chicago or otherwise — check in with that city’s LGBT center (provided they have one) and ask about job placement programs.
If all else fails, people can e-mail me/tweet me/etc., and I’ll try to give whatever not-awful advice I can.
