Chrissy, Sparkle 2012

“My street identity is transfemale, but my friends know me as gendervariant, or gV. I can’t grow a ‘proper’ head of hair due to baldness. So, I shave the little I have, right off. It confuses and scares people. Eeek! A bald woman! Some people have showed me sympathy because they think I’ve been ill. I thank them but say no, I chose to do this. Hair just isn’t important to me.”

    Yay! Thank you for having your picture on here. I identify for the moment as genderfluid and genderqueer. I was DMAB and I too am bald. It’s so great to see a bald non-binary person in living color! You look wonderful and it’s very encouraging to me.
