Profile: Zed


You can call me… Zed. I used to be “Z” but it turns out they can’t say “Z” in the UK.

I identify as… I don’t identify as anything. People make assumptions that I’m female and as far as what it says on my birth certificate, that’s correct. But I really really do NOT CARE.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Whatever you like to use. Again, I could not care less.

I’m attracted to… Soft/punk rock butches. Not too hardcore into the leather but some leather is nice!

When people talk about me, I want them to… talk about how “cool” I am, what a neat-o person, how interesting I am. Not the fact that I’m a dyke or don’t shave my legs. That stuff is so… unimportant.

I want people to understand… I am what I am. I went through hell in life being a lesbian. I don’t need to define myself, I don’t need to worry about what people think. I am. I just am. I really don’t need further anguish about my sexuality, nor do I need to explain why I, a woman, wear men’s clothes. They’re comfortable. They cost less. They’re what I love to wear. Does that make me weird? Why?

About Zed
Born in Alabama in ’62, moved all around the USA (running away from problems due to alcohol abuse), clean and sober one year last April. Artist, theater rat, punk rocker, tech-geek wanna-be (going back to school to learn that stuff). Single, ‘finding’ myself. Happy.
