About Tam
I’m currently studying a Masters degree in Music (performance). I have completed undergrad degrees in both science and music. I obviously love music, and I love to read and write. I have a fiance and a giant wolfhound dog. I’ve known I was asexual for a long time, but have recently embraced my inherent genderqueer-ness. It’s a big relief to now relax and be who I really am, instead of constantly trying to fit in as ‘female’!

Profile: Ariel


You can call me… Ariel

I identify as… Transfeminine and Genderqueer

As far as third-person pronouns go, … They/Them/Their is strongly preffered; but I wouldn’t mind feminine pronouns if you wanna make me blush.

I’m attracted to… Women and femininity.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Get to know me and like me for who I am as a person, and to never be judged solely based on my gender.

I want people to understand… My gender is my own identity. By following the path I’m on, I’m fulfilling a healthier, happier me.

About Ariel
I’m 22-years-old and trying to find a way to feel more comfortable with myself, after spending several months questioning my gender. Though I’ve only come out to a select number of people so far, I’m hoping to soon meet with a gender therapist to learn how to come out to others, and take whatever steps are necessary for me to be happy. These steps may include a new wardrobe, legal name change, and a possibility of hormones—all to become more feminine.

I’m also an actor, writer, and director who wishes to use art as a way of not only making a living, but also to bring out the beauty of the world around us. I think we can all use a little more of that in our lives.

Profile: Mordecai



You can call me… Mordecai, but Cai works just fine too.

I identify as… Non-binary/genderqueer. I’ve identified as cis-female and trans-male, but neither really felt right. Being NB feels perfect.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … They/them

I’m attracted to… Females, feminine non-binary people, it really varies, I’m just not into guys.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Refer to me by my preferred pronouns and not judge me based on my gender identity.

I want people to understand… That my gender identity has changed in the past and might change again in the future. Also, that it’s ok to ask questions and that honesty is wonderful. I’d much rather have someone be honest with me and ask a question about me (whether it has harmful intent or not) than for assumptions to be made about me and for me to conclude that it was intended to be harmful.

About Mordecai, but Cai works just fine too.
I’m Cai (as you already know). I’m non-binary and have a huge interest in both fine art and science. I currently live in BC, Canada and go to school here. I’d like to go to university and study to become a medical examiner or forensic pathologist, but also travel and do speeches about being gender non-conforming and raise awareness about it and other identities. I also play roller derby and am currently a junior skater with my town’s team. It’s a dream of mine to skate for Vagine Regime’s Canadian team one day.

Question: Trying To Be Fem at Seven A.M.


Joel asks…

I am gender fluid. Slowly (but surly) coming out to people. Over the summer I decided to take some big leaps, such as cutting 16 inches off of my hair and donating it. And then shaving one side. I love the hair cut, especially how on my more masculine days I can flip it and look like a flipping male model.

My parents are really liberal (Thank the god I don’t believe in) so I know that when I come around to coming out to them, it’ll be no big deal. So that is not what I am here to ask about.

Seeing as I am gender fluid, some days I feel girly. But with short hair…. well, lets just say it would be cool if I could switch the length at the snap of a fingers every now and then.

I know of plenty of ways to look more feminine on my feminine days, but it all takes a lot of effort. I don’t do well at waking up on time for school the way it is. Let alone 2 hours early for make up and clothes. So what this really long rant really comes down to, is if anyone know of some really easy, quick ways to look more girly with short hair when I have 10 minutes to get out the door and can hardly stand?

Self-Presentation

Question: Binder bulges: this binder doesn’t work?


Elliot asks…

Hi!
I just (finally) got my first binder, a 988. I’m not sure whether I’m wearing it wrong, or it’s the wrong size, or my expectations were out of line but it doesn’t seem to work.

But all the pictures I’ve seen of people wearing one show it really flattening their chests. Even with pushing down and out I either feel like I’m wearing a pushup bra, or I get weird bulges all over the place.

What am I doing wrong? Help?

Yours dysphorically.

100 Most Stylish DapperQs 2015


Reposted from DapperQ.

” In July 2013, dapperQ published their first ever list of 100 Most Stylish dapperQs. This was by far one of their most popular posts, but was by no means exhaustive. Since the original post was not comprehensive enough to capture all of the amazing dapper that exists in our community, their team decided to compile an annual list of 100 most stylish dapperQs.”

Every Breath We Drew


Reposted from The HuffPost (via Jess T Dugan).

“A new photo book has just been released and it examines the power of identity, desire, and connection through the art of portraiture in 2015.

Every Breath We Drew is a striking collection of images from photographer Jess Dugan, who sought out subjects that exhibit, in her words, a form of “gentle masculinity.” Through this work, Dugan complicates traditional notions of masculinity by photographing individuals in intimate spaces as meaningful exchanges took place.”

Trans Microaggressions


Reposted from Bisexual Women of Color (via GLAAD).

“Every day, trans and gender non-conforming people face overt and subtle discrimination as they try to go about their lives. As part of Transgender Awareness Week, GLAAD created a photo essay to highlight the more subtle forms of oppression trans people experience – often called microaggressions. Microaggressions are subtle verbal or behavioural slights that invalidate a person’s identity or experience.”
