EPISODE #10 | Aren Reveals The Man He Is

Pronouns: He/Him

From growing up with gender freedom to his experience in the military and child rearing, Aren (he/him) explores alternate expressions and uncovers the true man he is.

I am myself. I love myself. I am undeniably worth loving. I AM the right type of man after all.

Episode Notes:

This is Episode 10 of Season 5 of The TMI Project Podcast: Black Trans Stories Matter featuring Aren McDaniel. Aren is a U. S. Army Veteran and aspiring graphic novelist living in Lynchburg, Virginia. Aren strives to turn his experiences as a survivor of Gender-Based and Intimate Partner Violence, into stories of hope that will guide others to better informed life choices. As a newly-wed and a dad, when he isn’t working on creating middle-grade or YA graphic novels, he’s having nerdy adventures with his family, mixing fancy non-alcoholic drinks, or over-planning dinner.
