Abstract

TSQ's “New Media” section editor Tobias Raun interviews the British blogger/vlogger FinnTheInficible, who has been very open online about the physical and emotional process of having phalloplasty. He started video blogging in 2012, when he came out as trans on YouTube. His social media presence has since then increased and spread across media platforms (YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.). In this interview, Raun and FinnTheInficible discuss issues such as sensitivity and empowerment in relation to the public sharing of personal experiences with having phalloplasty. As argued by FinnTheInficible, more information is still needed on phalloplasty as well as improved communication between health-care professionals and trans people, not least to improve the aftercare.
