Rounding out the curriculum offerings for the TrueVoice program, the Trans*Masculine cycle debuted at Trans*Lounge in May 2018, in concurrence with another cycle of the Trans*Feminine program. Both classes booked to enrollment capacity and are rated highest of all courses offered at Trans*Lounge.

TrueVoice was created to address a need Ryland saw to equip the trans community with a new means of access to the voice, and, so, to a means of fuller expression in the world. Contemporary society has plenty of opportunities for trans people to be seen  - in movies, on television, on runways and with increasing visibility in everyday life. But it's not enough to be seen. Their stories need to be heard, person to person. And confidence in one's voice - confidence that your voice represents truth, self, identity - is essential to getting those stories out into the world. 

Ryland has been teaching this curriculum privately since the program's inception in September of 2017.
