Profile: Mae


You can call me… Mae

I identify as… Genderqueer, Third Gender, Butch, Trans, Transmasculine…

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Honestly, as long as you don’t call me “it” I’m fine. I’ve used male, female and gender neutral pronouns (all in one day, I might add!)

I’m attracted to… my wife.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Feel comfortable. I am an educator as well as a Trans person, so enjoy teaching about Trans identities, as long as my audience is willing to learn with an open mind and open heart.

I want people to understand… Trans people are everywhere… whether or not they know it. Not all Trans people are the same. Not everyone fits into the FtM or MtF spectrum (or the male-female spectrum for that matter).
