Profile: Jay

Black transmasculine person with medium-length dreadlocks wearing a grey tanktop, dogtags, and a brimmed cap, taking a picture of himself in a mirror with a cellphone.

You can call me… jay.

I identify as… genderqueer, transboi, jay.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … him, he, his, they, their, jay.

I’m attracted to… femmes, non-femmes, genderf#ckers, other transbois, queers, intelligence, wit, binary fighters, humor, bike punks, and nerds.

love nerds.

When people talk about me, I want them to… one: keep it real – don’t talk negatively about me and then pretend everything is “okey dokey” when I’m around.

two: keep it peaceful – negative energy is bad juju, for everyone.

three: keep it judgement free – if someone tries to walk a mile in my shoes, i’ll try to walk a mile in theirs.

I want people to understand… the concept of “normal” does not exist. the concept of gender does not exist. most concepts don’t exist – everything is impermanent, everchanging, and evolving.

my gender/sexuality/life choices are about me, whatever reactions people have about those choices, well, that’s about them.

About Jay
i’m a student, a former soldier, and a buddhist. i’m a paradox – complex, but simple. unique. outside of the box. i live in minneapolis. i live like there’s no tomorrow. i love bikes, food, books, music, art, and inner peace.


Everything else is trivial.
