What we talked about

 Erika sat down to chat with Abbie Rolf (They/Them/Theirs), mental health therapist specializing in transgender knowledgeable and inclusive care.

Using a person's accurate/preferred pronouns is tantamount to showing them basic human respect. Let's talk about the options we have, and how we can get better at using them.
