Podcast Interview: Questioning the Norm with Minka Guides

interviews Jan 30, 2024
Your questions, my answers: ASK ME ANYTHING 2024, Minka Guides

The other day, I joined my new friend Bronwyn on Minka Guides for an Ask Me Anything session to celebrate their birthday! We start the conversation by sharing our excitement about our newfound friendship in Mexico, where we've connected instantly over the past six weeks. It was a real privilege to get to interview a wonderful interviewer.

Watch the podcast in the video below, or scroll down for a summary.

Bronwyn introduces me as a gender-affirming voice teacher with they/them pronouns, and I take a moment to share a delightful anecdote about our first meeting, revealing the small world of queer connections.

The conversation covers a range of topics, including the impact of gender identity on relationships. I share my role as a voice teacher, helping trans+ individuals find a voice that brings them gender euphoria. Bronwyn opens up about their journey, highlighting the pressure they felt to conform to societal beauty standards in past relationships and how embracing their genderqueerness has positively shifted their self-worth. We talked about gayness, transness, pleasure, polyamory, monogamy, and so much more!

You can find a full transcript of the conversation on Minka Guides.


Hi, I'm Renée! (they/them)

I'm a queer, nonbinary, and disabled singer, songwriter and gender-affirming voice teacher. 

I've been a voice teacher for over twelve years, I have four full-length albums out, and I have degrees in physics, jazz, and songwriting.

I love creating, I love figuring things out, but most of all, I love helping people.
