Profile: Grace

You can call me… Grace…it’s the name I was born with.

I identify as… queer, as in I prefer women, but I’m not opposed to men. I’m curious about being genderqueer, curious about cross-dressing.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I identify as a woman, so I prefer “she” or “her”…although, it’s quite amusing when I am mistaken for a man. I don’t find that to be insulting at all in fact.

I’m attracted to… men and women, but mostly women. I’d rather be labeled by an outsider as gay, than I would straight. I’m more comfortable being seen with a woman, and having sex with a woman, than I am with a man…but I also love men. I’m just more gay than straight.

When people talk about me, I want them to… to not use labels as a putdown. So many people call me a dyke, or a freak, because it’s more comfortable to label me that way. I prefer to live without labels, but if someone were to label me, I would hope they would show me respect, and not judge me based on my mannerisms or appearance.

I want people to understand… that judgement hurts. I want the freedom to be who I am, and be who I want to be without being judged. It’s so hard to come out when the whole world wants you to be this particular person. No one completely fits into one category.

About Grace
I am an undiscovered singer and an amateur photographer. In my spare time, I write and harmonize. I fight zombies and collect music boxes. I hang out with nerds at conventions and play D&D. I love music and musical theater. I aspire to create things, and be a better bass guitar player. I tend to geek out sometimes.
