Profile: Spook


You can call me… Spook, The Boi Polloi, Taylor Trash

I identify as… Transqueer rivet-punk gender anarchist.
A gay man in a biologically female body.
Third-gender pansexual biofem who presents as male.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Anything that isn’t a female pronoun — female pronouns make me itch. Gender-neutral are fine, as are male pronouns. If I’m dressed and presenting as a male, male pronouns are preferred.

I’m attracted to… Intelligence, uniqueness and a sense of humor. People who bend or break rules and boundaries are a plus and gender ambiguity, tattoos or piercings are an added bonus.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Realize there’s a lot more to me than my gender, but also that my gender and presentation are not there to be humored or brushed off. It is as much a part of me as it is a part of anyone.

I want people to understand… There is so much more to gender than what is perceived. Gender as performance, as rebellion, as liberation, whereby no one should be confined to a box simply because documents and letters say so. Realize that the M and the F may be there for legal purposes, but as individuals, we have the freedom to deviate in whatever way we wish away from two little boxes into a whole new universe of diversity.

About Spook, The Boi Polloi, Taylor Trash
I’m a 35 year old disabled artist and full-time gender deviant in Tampa, Florida, and yes I know I don’t look my age. I have two teenage sons and am in a long term loving relationship. I keep a blog on my own gender journey at and my artwork can be viewed at Break the molds, and be yourself.
