Profile: Sam

You can call me… Sam Dylan Finch, or Sam for short.

I identify as… Genderqueer! Transmasculine! A super androgynous cutie.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … He/him/his, always.

I’m attracted to… People who wear their hearts on their sleeves. Queer babes who can rock a snapback. Androgyny in all its shapes and forms.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Remember that I am human. Remember that I have feelings. Remember that I am doing the best that I can. And remember that we are all “trans enough.”

I want people to understand… Gender is playful, beautiful, fun, thrilling, and yes, it can be radical and empowering. Transitioning, for me, wasn’t just born out of a struggle — my transition has been a celebration.
