In this third episode of LeetSpeak, I take a temporary detour from the usual conversation on Internet of Things (IoT) and cybersecurity as we close out LGBTQ pride month.
In this episode I talk through LGBTQ issues, helping listeners to better understand gender dysphoria, transgender issues, my own experiences as a transgendered woman and trans executive in the workplace, and more about myself in where I grew up and how my story came to be.
