Season 7 of I Am Jazz includes Hope Giselle in a handful of interesting episodes. She's a motivational speaker who goes on a date with Sander Jennings. As the first transgender person he’s ever been on a date with, this is new territory for him in the romance department.

Her podcast, Can We Talk, is described as a space that cultivates “real conversations with real people in real time" according to the Instagram bio. It's available for streaming on both Apple and Spotify.

What else should you know about Hope Giselle?
In one of the highlight reels on her Instagram page, she provides tips and information to help others better understand the transgender community. She includes an ally guide that’s meant to help cisgender people educate themselves about what it means to be transgender and to embrace LGBTQ individuals.
Based on some of her Instagram pics, she’s been known to rock a bikini or a fancy club dress every now and then. She also posts a lot of glamorous selfies with beautiful hair and makeup to complete each look.
Going on vacations is something else Hope takes super seriously. Most recently, she spent time in Cancun and looks like she totally enjoyed her time on the beach.
A relationship between Hope and Sander didn’t seem to blossom beyond the one date they went on together. According to her current Facebook status, she’s still totally single.
Hope also hasn’t posted any cute PDA-filled shots with Sander anywhere online either. Regardless of her relationship status, she's a great new addition to a show like I Am Jazz, and people who enjoy watching the TLC series can look forward to seeing more of her.
