Profile: Liz

You can call me… Liz

I identify as… queer punk (bisexual, gender questioning, currently settled on androgynous)

As far as third-person pronouns go, … whatever you got suits me just fine. Though most people see female, I’ve been referred to as he/they and that is perfectly fine too.

I’m attracted to… guys in crop tops, Shannyn Sossamon-type weird gals and anything inbetween.

When people talk about me, I want them to… drop the ‘for a girl’ suffix, and just accept who I am.

I want people to understand… that I want to pursue a predominantly male profession, I can hold my own when doing hard labour and I wish people would stop assuming I’ll be no good at manual tasks. And also that just because I’m growing my hair back out doesn’t invalidate my queerness. Just please be open and accepting.

About Liz
Like nigh on everyone else in the world, I’ve always felt different. From a young age music was there for me, and in my late teens I found punk rock. I’ve always dressed like the people I admire, be it male or female. I’m lucky in that only once or twice in my life has my Mum uttered the words ‘you look like a boy’ with the implied translation of ‘be more girly’, but my parents have never told me not to be myself or tried to stop me even if they didn’t personally like it.
