Let's get one thing clear. Jordan Raskopoulos is not a unicorn. Although, hey, she has no judgement if you are.

But Jordan is sometimes treated as a unicorn, because she is a transgender woman, AND a member of one of Australia's most successful comedy acts, The Axis of Awesome, who tour worldwide and have had 100 million YouTube hits.
Jordan has been in Axis since before, during and after her transition.

Jordan talks about how her life has changed since transitioning, how it has affected her role in one of Australia's favourite comedy acts, what cisgender means, and she brings us a new understanding of the term "gender dysmorphia."
It's a conversation worth hearing.
