Janae Marie Kroc: Strength is NOT a gender – Episode 57

Janae Marie Kroc is paving the way for transgender women in today’s strength world by striving to live a life that is more and not less.  Join us as we have a deep discussion about what gender is, how she was outed, her journey since then and a whole lot more.
