Profile: Elle Emme

You can call me… Elle Emme.

I identify as… a femme lesbian all the way.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … she/her.

I’m attracted to… amazing noses. Tomboys: There’s a fine line between tomboy and masculine, and I’m great at navigating it. I also adore the occasional (lucky!) femme. And I can’t forget my boyfriend.

When people talk about me, I want them to… never worry that I might be hurting. I want them to always talk about “happy” me.

I want people to understand… that I’m not hiding my identity in femininity. I love dresses, heels, skirts, makeup, long nails, and doing my hair. I love being queer. I want people to understand how difficult it can be being femme and having to tell everyone I meet that I am a lesbian, because they assume otherwise. Understand what it feels like to feel a constant pressure from both queer and straight communities to prove that I am queer, simply because my outward appearance doesn’t fit the stereotype. I want people to understand that I can have a boyfriend who is female-bodied, and that’s O.K.

About Elle Emme
My live revolves around inspiration. Music, clothes, and an oddball film influence me to write everyday. If I can’t be a writer, then I can’t be anything else. I want to be a voice in fiction for the outcast and/or the queer community.

    I get it. If you haven’t heard the song “Only Straight Girls Wear Dresses” by CWA, check it out. It’s pretty awesome (heads up, it’s explicit).

    Thank you for representing, beautiful femme sister.

    I moved to a new city and am no longer in a relationship and boy! this invisibility is making me sad! It has taken me plenty of work to present how I feel most comfortable (and most beautiful), and I often get the impression that I’m “too pretty” to be taken seriously.

    So, I feel ya!
