I dress how I want to dress.


Someone wrote…

I lived eighteen years of my life as “Shanyss” a girl who dressed how society told her to, conformed to people expectations, however for my eighteenth birthday a close friend brought me to a drag show.

From then on the concept of transgender was planted in my brain and I began seriously questioning my identity, I am more comfortable living now as “Frankie” and I dress how I want to dress, which depending on how I feel could be more like a boy or more like a girl.

I play bass guitar, write poetry and I like girls, and I have long since recognized that this is my life to live and I really don’t care what other people say about my choice.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Question: Binding as a Genderqueer person


CJ asks…

What is a good way to start experimenting with chest binding? I’m genderqueer and the only change I’d like to make to my gender expression is to bind my chest.

I was wondering where a good place to start would be?

What I needed.


Someone wrote…

I want to live in a world where the gender I’m born isn’t the gender I have to be. So, when the world couldn’t become what I wanted, I made it into what I needed.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Profile: Blake


You can call me… Blake

I identify as… Genderqueer

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I dislike pronouns of any kind. I prefer to be called and refereed to by my name.

I’m attracted to… personality and a sense of humor. When I first meet people I can’t tell if they are attractive or not until I get to know them.

When people talk about me, I want them to… see me as a “who” not a “what.” My gender and sexuality are not your business. I don’t mind questions but don’t be demanding, like since I’m the “weird one” it’s me that need to apologize and explain. Don’t assume anything.

I want people to understand… I’m genderqueer, I’m bi, I’m Catholic, I’m pro life. Remember to never pigeon-hole the people around you as you don’t know their past or their reasons for thinking the way they do, cis and non-binary alike.

Gracefully Trans


Submitted by Brettany, the model and photographer.

“Being Gracefully Trans…

…Is being comfortable being transgender…

…Without apology…

…Without complacency…

…Without letting fear paralyze me…

…Expressing myself in kindness…

…With gentleness…

…With firmness…

…With joy…

…Becoming who I am…

…All I am.”

One place


Someone wrote…

I’m genderqueer for the same reason I keep moving from city to city; Being in one place for too long feels unnatural.

Last night I had a dream


Someone wrote…

I had a dream last night that I had a vagina. It felt… good, weirdly familiar, considering I’ve never actually had one in real life.

I missed it when I woke up. Not sure how to feel about that.

I’ve thought for a while that I must be some stripe of gender-different, but what if I’m just straight up trans after all? I mean, it would mess up my life, a lot, but when I imagine it, I feel… relieved, I guess.

What’s your experience?

To date everyone and be everything.


Someone wrote…

The more I think about it, the more I want to PRESENT as an effeminate gay man who is sometimes a drag queen. This really confused my therapist. I don’t know that I want to BE a gay man in the respect that I want to be a man that dates men: I definitely feel queer, and I feel like I don’t want to be man NOR woman. I want to date everyone and be everything.

What’s your experience?

I don’t understand my gender, but I don’t want to change


Someone wrote…

Age and gender are things that are ever on my mind. I appear to most people as a high school boy, and I’m about 10 years past that point. I pass as male most of the time, but there are those occasions 30% of the time where people read me as a really butch lesbian.

I realized that I don’t want to transition. I like my body, and I don’t want to change my voice. It does cross my mind sometimes because I don’t like being misgendered, and every so often, I do wish I had the physical traits of a man, but that changes day to day.

If I were to transition, I feel like it would be only to make it easier on others to read my gender correctly. It would be to make it so there was no ambiguity in my appearance. This doesn’t feel like the right reason to transition. I would resent the permanent changes in my body. This means I have to “come out” often as trans by requesting the correct pronouns and explaining my gender. I don’t mind it most of the time, but sometimes it can get tiring.

All in all I’m me, and sometimes even I don’t understand my gender, but I don’t want to change. :)

Profile: Ellis


You can call me… Ellis

I identify as… Soft butch or blue jeans femme, agender, panromantic and polysexual! Assigned as female at birth, so I stick to that when it comes to choosing between female and male and there is no in-between.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer she or they in English!
In Swedish there is this wonderful pronoun “hen”.
NOT CHICKEN!
It is a mix between han (he) and hon (she) – and turn out to be “hen”. Which I prefer :)

I’m attracted to… Whoever, but often masculine females and non-binary people!

When people talk about me, I want them to… Respect me for who I am, agender and proud!

I want people to understand… That I am the same old me, just more sure about who I am! And that I respect you, as long as you respect me and try to stick to my preferred pronouns :D
