“I have been watching the videos interviews that Lilia Koss has been doing on Youtube and they have been so inspiring. My wife and I especially enjoyed the “One Couple’s Story” interview with D.M. Maynard. Thank you for doing these.” 

Lilia’s livestreams on current topics

“…genuinely, thank you. I want you to know that this video had a profound impact on me…” 

Lilia’s Youtube livestreams interviews and the Instagram “Tea Time” talks are bringing important issues to the table.  The creator, 9 years ago, of a now 3500 member peer group on Facebook was for two reasons: to build a space where we could all support one another and make researching gender affirming services simpler. These Lives events on social media are a way to communicate with our followers, bring professionals together and put a spotlight on all things gender affirming. 

What’s Upcoming on Lilia’s Livestreams?

So much appreciated, listening to your talk feels so uplifting. Thank you so much from Germany.”

Interviews with Opinion-leaders on Wednesdays

“Your interviews are doing a great part in clearing up things…Im really grateful for your content.” 

The first of Lilia’s Livestreams took place in mid-April 2020, when she finally gathered the courage to go live on Facebook. She has been working in the field of FFS Surgery since 2008, when she began as a patient coordinator. Since then, she has managed over 50 live events on a myriad of topics with opinion-leaders from around the world. Lilia says, “I’ve always felt like a patient advocate since my work is building relationships based on trust. Issues like trans healthcare access and patient care systems are part of an ethical foundation crucial to my job of interacting with the minority groups in the LGBTIQ+ community.” “I’ve been listening to the community for over a decade, watching how people have gradually become more proactive, connected with one another and hence better informed about all aspects of medical transition. Now I want to help both providers and the community have a voice on the themes that matter today, fostering a deeper understanding among us. And I like to say I’ve hijacked Facialteam’s platform to do this!”


“Great live video, I always appreciate these!”
