Profile: Vanessa Lynne

Vanessa Lynne

You can call me… Vanessa Lynne, Lady Vanessa, Vanni

I identify as… trans-woman, just plain woman, lady, girl, femme, lesbian

As far as third-person pronouns go, … it makes me so very happy when I am referred to in feminine terms… she, her, etc.

I’m attracted to… strong and feminist women, woman athletes, woman folk/rock musicians

When people talk about me, I want them to… be respectful of where I am in my life and gender journey, and to not be judgmental of me. I will do the same for them.

I want people to understand… I did not ask to be made the way I am and am doing my best to deal with it.
