Recommendation: Brody Polinsky


Morgan recommends…

Brody Polinsky
Tattoo artist who created a safe harbor studio for LGBTQI clients

Brody is a queer tattooer who created UNIV ERSE Studio in Berlin to be a safe harbor in an historically homophobic and transphobic industry. People travel from all over the world for one of his custom-made designs.

Tattooing is really vulnerable and permanent, it can be healing or traumatic depending on the artist’s bedside manner. Brody designed a gentle environment with tea and easy music and proper pronouns. :)

Profile: Em


You can call me… Em

I identify as… Both, I recognize that I am female biologically, but sometimes I feel like ignoring that particular physical aspect of myself.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … She would be fine, but I’m not against he at all — just as long as I’m never an “it”.

I’m attracted to… People

When people talk about me, I want them to… Talk about me in regard to my personality rather than my actual gender preference, with is both — and neither at the same time — if that makes any sense.

I want people to understand… I’m not Trans, Lesbian, Gay, or Bisexual, If I ever get comfortable with the idea of dating someone, it will be my choice what I am — nobody else’s.

About Em
19 year old college student doing a little self exploration — the kind I’ve never been able to do with my parents watching my every decision.

Question: fluid? demigirl?


Someone asks…

I need help. I’m a 15 year old biological female and have gone by that all my life but for the past couple of months I’ve been questioning my gender. I’ve been doing research and I think I may be genderfluid. Even long before I questioned my gender, there would be days where I felt way more boyish and days where I felt more girly than normal but most of the time I just did my own thing. But now that I’ve looked into it, I’m more confused than ever. I’m trying to keep track of it but it becomes very frustrating, especially when most of the time I don’t feel particularly any way. I’m also fine with just using female pronouns, but haven’t experimented with male or neutral pronouns. I’ve also seen demigirl and think I could be that along with fluid but I’m not sure if that makes me “less” fluid. Could I just be a girl who’s overthinking this? I honestly don’t know.

Please post your response in the comments below.

Profile: The Big Snuggle


You can call me… The Big Snuggle

I identify as… I go with genderqueer because I am a male who is not a man. Well, I am a man but I’m also a woman. Actually scratch that. I’m not a woman. I’m not a man. I am something that you’ll never understand. *

I feel at home in my male body but have always been supremely uncomfortable with masculinity as it was impressed upon me. I’ve found it liberating to pick and choose from masculinity and femininity in how I express myself as a gendered person. Or to put it another way, as I’ve grown into my skin, I’ve shed a lot of societal bullshit, including my anxieties around being seen as not masculine enough or too feminine, and I’m happier and more fabulous for it. This is a work in progress, and is more an attitude than a fixed state.

* (That was a Prince reference.)

As far as third-person pronouns go, … most say he/him/his, some say she/her. I don’t have a preference between those two pronouns because they are both correct.

I’m attracted to… authenticity, empathy, kindness, humor, good boundaries, good communication, women, men, androgyny, queers queers queers. If I feel safe being vulnerable with you, my heart is yours and I’m gonna rock your world.

When people talk about me, I want them to… feel happy.

About The Big Snuggle
Love. I want them to understand that it doesn’t matter whether sexuality and gender are a “choice” or not. We are each on our own path, we haven’t lived in each others’ bodies, and life is a limited engagement. We should trust that each person is a beautiful, wise, neurotic, autonomous creature and we should strive to lift each other (and ourselves) up in our quests to survive, find meaning and experience joy. That’s love.

Profile: KC


You can call me… KC

I identify as… A demisexual genderfluid teen who’s trying their best to have fun while being a good kid.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Use whatever you’d like. I won’t be terribly upset if you use the wrong pronouns on certain days and with this being the internet you don’t know if I’m having a more female or male day anyways.

I’m attracted to… No one unless I connect with you on an emotional and/or intellectual level. And fictional characters.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Like me and to want to be my friend on this epic journey we call life.

I want people to understand… That life is hard. It’s difficult for everyone and honestly I’m just thankful to be alive.

About KC
I never really know what to say in these. I’m almost legally an adult which I suppose is nice. I surprisingly don’t use tumbler, though lord knows I’d fit in there. I like to consider myself to be open minded, but I’m certain that I’m empty headed. Though I don’t know much about the LGBTQ+ community I am willing and excited to learn! Thank you for reading my bio. If you’d like to ask any qauestions or learn more, feel free to contact me.

Profile: Arion


You can call me… Arion

I identify as… Feminine trans man

As far as third-person pronouns go, … He/Him please

I’m attracted to… Smiles, health, wit, intelligence, validation and warmth. Generally men and NB folk, but I do admire the beauty of women(goddesses honestly). But mostly, I am attracted to bright, beautiful souls that I can admire, try to understand, and interact with.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Have only kind words, and if unkind ones need to be shared, at least come away from the conversation feeling lighter.

I want people to understand… Just because I am not a masculine man, does not mean I am any less of a man. I am not a girl who likes pink and flowers and bunnies, I am a boy who likes pink and flowers and bunnies. I don’t need to be masculine to still be valid.

About Arion
Hi! I’m Arion, and I’m a pretty cool dude (j/k I’m a loser). I’m an amateur artist, writer, and philosopher. My hobbies include doodling instead of working, spending hours on end considering what the infiniteness of the universe might mean to humanity, and trying to understand simple yet extremely complicated mathematical concepts. Always here for a giggle or a challenge of the mind.

Question: Pant Sizes?


Ben asks…

Okay, so I’m finally beginning to feel comfortable with myself, I’m finally deciding to buy whatever clothes I like no matter if they are “mens” or “womens”. I have a problem with confidence in buying clothes when I am by myself, though. Anyway, that not what this is about. I have some questions concerning women’s pants size.

I know my waist which is a 6-8 but my leg length I am very unsure of. And when I am shopping by myself I get scared of asking what pants I should buy and what sizes fit me best. I would shop online, but with out knowing my leg size I cannot. my only question is, is this: if I am a mens 30 waist and 34 leg length, what does that make my leg length in women’s? I’m lost and very confused as to what to do in this matter and because of my shyness i am afraid to ask people in the store. please help. Also, these are U.S. sizes, if that matters.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … She/her but they/them is fine too

I’m attracted to… I’m an androromantic ace who enjoys people who are very masculine presenting and athletic but also sensitive and romantic

When people talk about me, I want them to… Not speculate about my gentalia. Not attempt to draw conclusions on who I am based on my appearance or relationships.

I want people to understand… Intersex is a real and valid identity. And yes it is a medical condition but I can still have pride in it! I am not straight. I am currently in a relationship with a queer cis man and as I present as female we get told we don’t belong in LGBTQ+ spaces even though we are both part of the community.

About Rachel
