LOS ANGELES, CA – The Trans Adult Industry Foundation (TAIF) is teaming up with Gather & Grow OC and The Voice Stylist to give away two free voice feminization courses for June’s LGBTQ Pride month.
“A wise human once said that the human voice is the organ of the soul,” says The Voice Stylist owner, Tina Babajanians. “My mission is to unlock the soul of each human I interact within the container of my clinic. My offerings are perfect for folks who wish to discover their vocal potential and find their authentic expression.”
Speech pathologist Tina Babajanians offers gender-affirming voice therapy and coaching. Transgender voice therapy is a safe and effective option for any transgender person seeking to unlock their authentic voice. Babajanians works with a wide variety of clients, including trans women, trans men, queer, and non-binary individuals to help them discover the full spectrum potential of their voices.
“We’re so thankful for this generous offering from both Gather & Grow OC and The Voice Stylist,” added TAIF Co-Director, Kristel Penn. “Vocal transition can be an important step in the transition process for trans individuals. It can cause stress and dysphoria for people who feel their voice does not align with their gender expression. It’s important to note that Tina doesn’t believe a trans woman or trans man’s voice should sound a certain way, but rather works with people one-on-one to help them achieve their own personal vocal goals. TAIF does not believe there is one way to be trans and we respect that Tina’s ethos reflects that as well.”
TAIF will be giving away two free courses from The Voice Stylist: The Self-Directed Voice Feminization Program and a 5-Session Voice Feminization Course with Tina.
To enter the free giveaway, applicants are asked to share why they’d like to take the course by filling out the contest form here: http://www.taif.org/pride-2020-giveaway
