Pride


Submitted by Chris, the model.

“I feel so happy. This is really me.
Today I went and celebrated LGBT Pride.
Afterwards I went for a walk and got on the train.
I got stared at by some people. I’ve learned to ‘own’ the stare. I stare right back.

Embracing my beard has taught me that I don’t have to be afraid of being ‘caught out’ for not passing or for not adhering to the feminine stereotype. The beard is a statement that I am acknowledging the masculine ‘roots’, and that it’s there for a reason.”

There’s Been Enough of a Pattern…


Someone wrote…

I’m a girl, I think. AFAB for sure, but maybe not quite a girl, per se. I dunno. Anyway.

When I was a kid, like 5 or 6, I dressed up as Cinderella for Halloween. Blue fluffy dress, sparkly tiara, the works. I even had that plastic button on the dress that says what princess dress this is. Girly as all get-out.

A couple years later, I became Jessie from Toy Story. The typical movie tomboy, of course. And I was redhead, with the perfect hair for Jessie’s braid. I even had the hat.

Then, when I was twelve, I dressed as Jack Sparrow – or rather, *Captain* Jack Sparrow – from Pirates of the Carribean. A fem!Jack, but Jack nonetheless. My friend Kevin did the braids.

Last year – age fourteen – I dressed as Dr. Spencer Reid, a character from my favourite TV show, Criminal Minds. I was nowhere near as handsome, nor did I pass at all, but still. I was a cute Spencer.

This year… I don’t know. I’m fifteen, and identify as genderqueer or genderfluid. All I know is, my parents don’t believe me because “[me coming out] is too sudden for this to be real.”

Why, though? There’s been enough of a pattern…

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
