Living In The Grey


Submitted by anonymous, the model and photographer.

“I identify with that of an androgynous person. For a few years I’ve always felt somewhere in between Feminine and Masculine, like I was always ‘something else’. Though I probably appear as completely normal ‘girl’, mannerisms in person say it all I guess.”

Genderfluid bookworm in Salem, MA


Submitted by Oliver Leon, the model.

“I am gleefully holding up Garth Nix’s ‘Abhorsen’ at my partner as xe takes my picture. I am sharing this so people know that non-binary genderfluid transsexuals like me exist. And I exist, sometimes joyfully or madly or cheerfully, sometimes with sorrow or grief or rage, yet I am still here. Gender might be a map or a monster or dance party yet it is still my friend after all of this struggle.”

Recommendation: In a Bind


XylophoneGender recommends…

Banner for "In a Bind", the logo looks like a ball of blue, red, purple, and magenta wool. Part of TransActive Education & Advocacy; their logo consists of four puzzle pieces in the same four colours as the wool.

In a Bind
Binder Exchange Program for Youth

Several binder exchange programs limit recipients to binary-identified guys only. In a Bind doesn’t. On their eligibility page, they state that their program is “for trans-masculine and genderqueer youth suffering from gender dysphoria resulting in discomfort about their chest.”

The program is focused on the USA, but they encourage youth from elsewhere to contact them for recommendations in other countries.

I’m not weird, I’m just a limited addition.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Profile: S


You can call me… S.

I identify as… Agender

As far as third-person pronouns go, … they/them.

I’m attracted to… people who accept me just the way I am. People who care about my brain more than my body.

When people talk about me, I want them to… feel that I’m an important contribution their lives. That I inspire people to be brave and be their authentic selves.

I want people to understand… I threw out the entire concept of gender, and just want to be considered as a human.

About S.
I’ve pondered the whole social structure regarding gender, and I call myself a Gender Freethinker: I feel like gender is totally irrelevant, and I don’t believe in it. I’m a free-spirit, and I want to find out for myself the truth about certain subjects – rather than take one person’s opinion as fact. I don’t think like other people, nor do I want to. I enjoy the company of people who are not stuck in old paradigms of thinking. Which is why I have an affinity for Genderfluid, Non-binary, Neutrois, Agender, Intersex people, and a variety of others who are setting their sights on new paradigms of thinking. I love it when people think “outside the box”.

Not a part of me


Someone wrote…

I don’t want to dislike my breasts. In themselves, they’re not that bad. They didn’t do anything evil. They just don’t feel like a part of me. And as long as they’re there, it’s considered not OK for me to go bare-chested, which is a constant reminder that people read me as female. And a constant reminder of the gender inequality of our society.

Would I feel better with a “masculine” chest? I don’t know. I’ve considered binding, but I already have some breathing issues due to anxiety. It does feel better when I’m wearing a sports bra, but I also want to be able to love my body naked and exposed. As of now, I’m not sure if I’ll manage to integrate the breasts with my intergender identity, or decide to remove them. But most of the time, I just wish I didn’t have this struggle at all.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
