Profile: Quin

You can call me… Quin, Quinlan, Pan, Pandora

I identify as… A queer, genderqueer transguy. Generally because I swing between feeling male and feeling genderless.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer either ‘he’ or ‘ze’. Generally, anything other than feminine pronouns of ‘it’ are fine with me.

I’m attracted to… Confident people who are not put off by my gender identity and gender expression. I like honest people who are chill and just like to have fun.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Realize that my transition doesn’t define me, I define it! And that my gender identity or gender expression do not define me or each other.

I want people to understand… That we are all just people, regardless of gender identity, gender expression, or sexuality. We’re all trying to make it through this mess called life regardless of what we use to do that – and that just because of those things, it doesn’t make any of us different from anybody else.

About Quin
When I was a child I refused to wear girl’s underwear. My mother was not pleased. I fought my mother on how my hair was cut till I was 13 and she finally let me cut it short. My father still gives me hell about ‘dressing like a boy’ and thinks it’s because of my sexuality (which is clearly isn’t). Now I’m walking the borderlines of gender because I am not comfortable with the confines of the gender binaries and I feel more free with identifying as a gender-queer androgynous transguy.

    I love your quote “Realize that my transition doesn’t define me, I define it!” SO TRUE!!!!

    Your remark about not being defined, but defining yourself has offered my a lot of clairvoyancy tonight <3
