Trying New Things


“Trying New Things” submitted by CC, the model and photographer.

“As of right now, I’m a cisgender female who’s interested in acting as an ally to those rebelling against the gender binary. However, I’m also a feminist who’s really interested in the idea of gender as performance. Out of curiosity, I may have nicked my dad’s dress shirt/suspenders from his closet to try drag for the first time… there were a lot of other photos, but these three were the ones that I felt kind of encompassed what I was trying to explore…. this is just for you, genderfork! I love you & everything you do!”

    Great pictures. Reminds me of Audry Hepburn.

    Speaking as another cisgendered female ally who makes occasional forays into drag, I say these pictures are awesome.

    Also, I am extremely covetous of your hair.

    I think this is wonderful. I’m also a cisgender female and ally. I experiment, too, and I’m comfortable in both typical male and female clothes. You’re awesome and I love your pictures!

    This is excellent! I love when cisgendered people understand and explore the fluidity of gender, because we all transgress the limitations of gender in some way. Fluidity! Spectrums! Awesome!

    You look awesome. I love your supportive and loving attitude and a willingness to explore your curiosity. The pictures themselves are quite beautiful too.

    I can’t believe this is up here! Thank you for all the wonderful comments!

    (Also I’m shaking a little bit because I JUST saw this on feministing and here and it’s a little surreal and SO SO flattering!)

    If anyone’s interested in following me on tumblr, it’s :)

    Thank you again for all the love!!!
