voice resources for trans people on T 

I'm researching this a little anyway, so I'll make this a thread of helpful resources about voice changes and voice therapy for trans men and other trans people on T.

The Good Men Project has this summary of a study of 30 trans men's voices. They found T was typically very successful at bringing the voice into the average cis male range, but other aspects of making the voice sound masculine need voice therapy.

Constansis, "The Changing Female-To-Male (FTM) Voice," in the Radical Musicology journal. A lot of practical information about how to do voice therapy during transition in order to have a healthy, expressive voice, and prevent hoarseness or loss of singing range.

Here is a fantastic dissertation from 2018 all about how the voice changes on T, and how to take care of it. It has a timeline of what changes happen in each month, and instructions for voice exercises.
