Profile: Yulan


You can call me… Yulan.

I identify as… genderqueer, but I identify as lesbian to make things easier for people. Jamaican trying to interpret life and, above all, a Human being with feelings.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … teachers usually call me she/her, but my Spanish teacher called me senor on several occasions and it made my day, also small children tend to mistake me for a boy. I find it cute. But as far as pronouns go, it doesn’t matter but a male pronoun tends to cheer me up.

I’m attracted to… artistic girls who look like they could be a boy. Genderqueer/fluid peeps. Honesty, laughs and joy all around. Hip Hip Hoorayyy!

When people talk about me, I want them to… realize I am who I am and say “my oh my wasn’t that just fabulous?”

I want people to understand… that life isn’t black or white and neither is gender. So buckle up kids!

About Yulan
I’m a junior going to school in New York. I’m an immigrant with a Jamaican accent that people still mistake for British/Irish or on the rare occasion German. I WILL attend SVA and major in Graphic Design and most of all I’ll be happy doing it. Oh, and I have a tumblr!

    This part made me smile: “I’m attracted to… artistic girls who look like they could be a boy. Genderqueer/fluid peeps. Honesty, laughs and joy all around.”

    It’s nice to know that not EVERYONE is anti-people like me. XD

    You got a little something on your nose there. No, not my left, your left! ;)

    Love your hair!

    When I was in Germany I had a professor call me “Herr So-and-So”” and that was probably in the second week of classes.

    Good luck in school and life!
