Profile: Sam


You can call me… Sam

I identify as… Nonbinary!

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I use plural they/them, plural because it sounds better to say.

I’m attracted to… Girls and femme aligned nonbinary people.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Use my pronouns, and treat me like any other person.

I want people to understand… I don’t mind if you slip up, as long as you recognise it (I slip up too!). The gender binary is very constricting and it feels so much truer to me to be nonbinary!

About Sam
I’m Sam, a genderless blob who studies engineering and likes sci-fi.

Profile: Kayden


You can call me… Kayden

I identify as… Demiboy

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer being referred to as him, but I guess I’m fine with they/them.

I’m attracted to… Mostly females.

When people talk about me, I want them to… know that gender or preference does not fully define you, but your heart does.

I want people to understand… that I am actually the nicest person you can ever meet even though I tend to hide myself.

Profile: Ange or Angie


You can call me… Ange or Angie, but I’m not as comfortable with those names. I’m still looking for a “male” one–right now I have “Angelo”.

I identify as… Genderqueer, but I’m still finding out if it’s just another phase I’m going through.

Quick backstory: I was repressed with my identity as a kid, and now I’m rebelling and not caring about what my parents think.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … She or they.

I’m attracted to… Females.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Know that I’m not straight, because that’s everything I’m not. I’m currently in the beginning stage of finding out about myself, so there will be a lot of changes in the next weeks.

I want people to understand… That I’m still finding out about myself and yes, I feel comfortable with a label–that’s just who I am.

About Ange or Angie
I’ve been playing the piano since I was four and have been picking up different instruments at a young age. I have an incredibly strong passion for music and the arts except for art itself. Performing/acting and literature (novels and poetry) keep me grounded from my usual flying mind that goes everywhere during my depressed months.

(A real quick one: I have been identifying myself as “lesbian” or “tomboy” at a young age and quickly changed it due to a religious family. Later, I went with bi and came out to my parents who surprisingly kind of accepted me. Now, I’m waiting for the day where I can come out as “genderqueer”.)

Profile: Evren


You can call me… Evren

I identify as… a boy, mostly, neither, in between, sometimes.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … as long as you don’t call me a girl, I’m pretty happy with gender-neutral and male pronouns.

I’m attracted to… everyone with a good heart. A good face is nice too, but not required. It’ll match the heart.

When people talk about me, I want them to… not just pander to me by using my pronouns, while still think of how much of a girl I am in the back of their minds. I just want to be one of the guys.

I want people to understand… that just because I’m wearing a skirt that day doesn’t mean I’ve decided to be a girl again, or changed at all.

I identify as… A theater kid nonbinary pan boy, possibly ace/arospec?

As far as third-person pronouns go, … He/him, or they/them. He/him is best, though.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Affirm that I’m not a girl, even behind my back, and acknowledge my accomplishments.

Profile: Christophe Catherine


You can call me… Christophe Catherine

I identify as… androgyne / non-binary / genderqueer

As far as third-person pronouns go, … they/them, he/him, sometimes she/her feels good too

I’m attracted to… my queerfriend (also non-binary), a lot of enbies/androgynes, as well as feminine men and any women

When people talk about me, I want them to… not call me “it” because this sort of discourse deprive me of my humanity; and ask a person about their pronouns or use gender-neutral ones if unsure

I want people to understand… …that the “either male or female”, a.k.a. gender binary, concept is only an approximation rather than complete truth

About Christophe Catherine
an amab bi/pansexual androgyne (identifying as such for at least 10 years) with autism spectrum disorder; feminist/leftist political leanings; into punk/goth subcultures and music; http://elegantandrogyne.tumblr.com

Profile: Perry


You can call me… Perry

I identify as… Not quite a woman but definitely not a man. Queer. Social Phobic. I don’t know; my brain stresses me out.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … she/her, but being referred to as “he” doesn’t upset me as much as my mom thinks it should.

I’m attracted to… People.

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

I want people to understand… Just because I don’t say anything doesn’t mean I have nothing to say.

About Perry
I’m going to college in like a month in a half. I’m trying to get my act together enough to study social work (the height of irony), make a friend for once, and stop being so scared all the time.
