Written By: Dr. Jaime G. Raygoza

In a compelling Finding the Unicorn in You podcast interview, advocate Savannah Hauk shares her powerful journey as a crossdresser and proud dual-gendered individual. With candor and wisdom, Savannah provides insights on authentic living, visibility, and finding your inner unicorn.

Early Draw to the Feminine:

From childhood, Savannah felt a profound affinity for the feminine, though she lacked the language or role models to understand it. She found comfort in dressing as her true self, not linked to trauma or deception as commonly portrayed.

Moving South and Increased Visibility:

A longtime New Yorker, Savannah retreated inward after relocating to South Carolina, fearing intolerance. But connecting with LGBTQ+ communities emboldened Savannah to live visibly, proudly going out as herself. Though still facing bias, the reality proved better than her assumptions.

Countering Ignorance with Education:

Savannah stresses that fear stems from ignorance. She urges engaging respectfully with skeptics, and answering questions to bridge divides. Though many cling to biases, even impacting one open mind can create change. Savannah exemplifies leading by example.

Advice to LGBTQ+ Youth:

For questioning youth, Savannah advises finding safe communities, online or in-person, to explore identity. She acknowledges the need for caution in unaccepting environments. Safety comes first, but fear shouldn't totally discourage authenticity.

Living Unapologetically as Yourself:

When asked for one piece of advice, Savannah stresses living as your truest self without the worry of judgment. This brings the greatest contentment and kindness. She urges all people, regardless of identity, to follow their inner unicorns.

Unicorn Lesson:

The key takeaway from Savannah's journey is that unicorns live openly and boldly as their true selves. Though facing obstacles, they radiate authentic confidence to create change.
