Profile: Ludo


You can call me… Ludo

I identify as… becoming/upandcoming.

An ex-lesbian, postmodern queer, genderqueer, female-sexed, fag, bee oh eye not bee oh why. Poly-sympathiser. Me.

Depending on my relationship dynamic with a friend/partner, my presentation often unintentionally alters; this often can cause issues.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … ‘She’ and ‘Her’ used to make me shrivel up inside, but I think that was before I truly figured it all out. Call me what you want; generally I’ll answer. Occasionally, I like masculinised pronouns, but not just for the sake of it. Usually I use ‘they’ and ‘their’ myself, however.

I’m attracted to… People (who play with gendered and non-gendered realities and dynamics).
Femmes when I’m their queer prince.
Bois to wrangle with and get muddied knees.
Geeks and academics.

When people talk about me, I want them to… hate me or love me. Challenge me.

Remember that gender diversity goes beyond presentation and realise that binary pretension within our own queer/trans community can be extremely damaging to individuals.

I want people to understand… that identities are like sushi restaurants. Both comprise of menus and menus of options and have a neverending conveyor-belt of choices, which can be modified to suit both situation and palate.
