Our special guest, Liz Jackson Hearns is a voice instructor and author specializing in transgender voice. Liz shares her passion for creating a â€œgender affirming voice studioâ€.
â€œVoice is such an integral expression of our identity. I am passionate about offering ways for people to explore and develop gender expression through voice that helps them feel confident and anchored. More and more folks, especially young people, are feeling safe to come out as trans or non-binary and as voice teachers, we have a wonderful opportunity to provide knowledgeable and affirming voice care.â€
