Trystan Reese






I’m Trystan Reese, transgender storyteller, facilitator, and parent. My family exploded into the public eye after being featured on the parenting podcast The Longest Shortest Time. Our family’s story has since been covered by People Magazine, on Buzzfeed, on CNN, and in hundreds of other outlets across the globe.

What many people may not know is that I’m a professional storyteller, who's been featured on The Moth Mainstage (in three cities!) and The Moth Radio Hour. I’m also an educator who works with birthing professionals and organizational teams on increasing their competency around transgender issues.

My passion is facilitating transformative experiences. Period. I make this happen on podcasts, in mainstream media, during keynote addresses at universities and conferences, in small and large group trainings, through brand partnerships, on social media… and more!


"Trystan delivered one of the best conference keynotes I’ve ever heard — enlightening, smart, funny, poignant - and radically informative. With love and creativity, Trystan brought us the best mix of story and science. ”

- Wendy Davis, Executive Director of Postpartum Support International
