Pride is a vibrant celebration of diversity, inclusion, and equality for the LGBTQ+ community. It is a time when we come together to honor the struggles and achievements of those who fought for LGBTQ+ rights. Amidst all the rainbow-coloured festivities, we at Gym+Coffee felt this year especially it is crucial to focus on supporting one specific group within the community - transgender individuals. 

We are excited to share this Gym+Coffee podcast special, where our co-founder Niall Horgan sit’s down with transman Jacob Donegan. 

Jacob has been on an incredible journey over the last few years, transitioning from female to male and dealing with the physical, mental and emotional effects of that. 

Jacob’s not afraid to talk about the uncomfortable aspects of gender transition and his goal is to educate people about the process which he does through his series  “Real Talk With Jacob” on TikTok. As a result he has has gained over 1.2 million followers on the app. 

The guys were meant to chat over an intense game of Jenga. However they got carried away in the conversation and unfortunately never got around to it. They might have to have a rematch! 

Together this Pride, let's stand alongside our transgender friends, family members, and community members, ensuring that they feel seen, heard, and loved not only during Pride Month but every day of the year.
