Profile: Topher


You can call me… Topher.

I identify as… transgender, genderqueer, and everything in the middle.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I’m a huge fan of singular “they.”

I’m attracted to… intelligence, sense of humor, and a love of life.

When people talk about me, I want them to… respect my trans* status and not disclose anything to people without my permission. I want to be liked and respected by my peers.

I want people to understand… that I’m the way I am, not because I’m trying to make other peoples’ lives difficult, but because this is who I feel an overwhelming desire to be. I want people to understand that it’s been a long time and a lengthy process of discovering myself, and that I’m still in transit. I may never have a concrete gender identity or presentation, and that’s ok.

About Topher
I’m an art major in my fourth year at university. I play the string bass, and I have a passion for photography.
