Profile: Lisa Marie

You can call me… Lisa Marie.

I identify as… Sexuality: I prefer queer, because it is less restrictive. However, I am also okay being referred to as a lesbian. I strongly identify with the lesbian community.

Gender: Cisgender / Femme Female

As far as third-person pronouns go, … “She” or “Her” are fine.

However, gender-neutral pronouns are also acceptable, as I do not believe pronouns should be gendered. No one should have to feel isolated.

I’m attracted to… “masculine” women mostly, androgynous or genderqueer women, female to male transgender… occasionally cisgender men (very rarely).

I have a beautiful partner right now, and she identifies as a butch lesbian.

When people talk about me, I want them to… when people talk to me, I want them to know that I am a dedicated LGBTQ activist, and I take my work in the community very seriously. I am proud of what I have accomplished, and I hope my contributions will improve the lives of many queer people.

I want people to understand… I would like people to understand that just because my gender presentation is femme, it does not mean that I am not a lesbian. Many people have pre-conceived notions about what lesbians or queer women are supposed to look like. I do carry a purse, I like to wear my heels, and I like to dress up in a skirt, but don’t assume (based on my appearance) that I am heterosexual.
