You can call me… Ash
I identify as… A flamey pansexual agnostic pro-Palestine Jewish genderqueer FtM-transitioning boything.
As far as third-person pronouns go, … Ze and hir for people who get it; he and him for people who don’t.
I’m attracted to… Grace, intelligence, honesty, compassion, an appreciation for the unusual, a taste for adventure, wordplay, cooking skills, gendered self-awareness, queerity.
When people talk about me, I want them to… …stick up for the reality and reasonableness of who I am.
I want people to understand… …that my life is complicated, but also pretty great, and that I’d rather have their support and celebration than their pity. That my identity isn’t a commentary–pro or con–on theirs.
Ash is an artist and craftsperson, living and trying to make a living in the middle of the country. Ze digs ink, paper, and fiber, and could cheerfully work a nine-to-five job that involved sorting, filing, and organizing all three of those things, then dumping them all out and starting over. Most days, Ash is either drawing, printing, book-binding, doll-making, spinning, or knitting; the other days, ze’s probably mucking about in the kitchen.
Ash is also the president emeritus of the best, bad-assest queer group, and a recent MFA graduate in printmaking, which appears to overqualify hir for all available jobs and adequately qualify hir for none, but ze’s pretty excited about it, anyway.
