In this episode we meet Taylor Branham- A 28 year old trans man living in Los Angeles, CA. Last year he was featured in a mini documentary series for The CW called “Tough Mudder: Tougher Together”. It largely focused on his recovery from gender confirmation surgery, Metoidioplasty, and rehabilitating his body to compete in a Tough Mudder event (Tough Mudder is one of those really fun obstacle course races.)Taylor: “For me, Tough Mudder is a way of life, not just an annual event. As a man of transgender experience, Tough Mudder is tangible proof of my body and mind’s ability to overcome all obstacles. I use my experiences and hardships on the course as a reminder of my strength in daily life... A reminder to stay humble, to hustle and to know what it means to put in the work.” *Special Side Note: Use Taylor’s special 30% OFF promo code for any first time Tough Mudder event of the 2019 season!
