GenderF*ck: liberation for all genders in a society where gender confines people
GenderFck is a one-of-a-kind, research-based, 10-week online group coaching program that is designed to help you tap into a sense of play, pleasure, and possibility while exploring your gender.
The brainchild of Rae McDaniel, a gender and certified sex therapist, it combines personalized coaching, worksheets and homework assignments, and a community to provide you with the support and tools you need to be you in new and more authentic ways.
“Hands down, working with Rae was THE best self-care decision I made when assessing my gender identity. Our sessions together were highly impactful, providing support, critical perspective, and insights which helped me reflect on what I needed to live authentically and course correct my life. In short, Rae helped me find, establish, and develop the best of me, and I am so thankful for it. To anyone looking for support through a major life change, and especially to individuals exploring their own gender or sexual identity, do not hesitate to contact Rae and Practical Audacity. They. Are. Wonderful.
