I know who I am


Someone wrote…

I’m feeling more queer than ever, yet my appearance is more femme than ever. I’m comfortably wearing skirts for the first time in my life. I no longer worry about the way others perceive me because of them. I know who I am.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Backyard Barbeque


Submitted by Able Gender, the model.

” This sort of came together out of the blue. I had put on a fake moustache, my friend handed me his sunglasses, and I was drinking a coke. I call it “backyard barbeque” because it reminds me of the backyard parties my parents used to have, and it kinda looks like some of their friends.”

Question: Feminine but not quite?


Izzy asks…

I don’t feel 100% feminine but I don’t really identify as being androgyne, agender or masculine in any way.

It’s fairly hard to express and it’s really only something I’ve started thinking about relatively recently so I’m not sure how my identity will shift or what I’ll end up feeling comfortable referring to myself as.

I regard myself as mostly feminine but it just doesn’t feel quite right – I realise that this falls under the genderqueer umbrella; is there a specific term for individuals who feel the way that I do?

Please post your response in the comments below.

The multiplicity of the human experience

It attempts to make visible the experiences of those within the queer community, most specifically, those falling within and outside of the binaries of gender and sexuality.”

Ah-ha moments


Someone wrote…

I’ve had a few “ah-ha” moments in this past year of gender identity exploration that have really helped me get past a bunch of fear and insecurities. For instance…

One of the first things I did was to get a pair of tall women’s riding boots (I’m a bio-male human person). When I wore them out in public I got such a wide range of comments and questions about them, and NONE of them had anything to do with them being women’s boots. Some people made horse jokes. Someone thought I was being “fancy”. Some guy at a nightclub said, “Sick boots, bro! Are those military?”

It clicked immediately for me that you just can’t control how other people contextualize what you are expressing. Everybody sees things through their own lens and, really, the only thing that matters is how I see myself through my lens. I don’t even care if somebody kinda makes me fun of me anymore. That’s their problem.

I would love to hear nuggets or experiences that other people have found especially valuable!

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Labels and Boundaries


Someone wrote…

I feel as if my body is not mine because it does not match the me on the inside. Feminine and masculine all at once. In between in a world of labels, I will continue to stretch my boundaries being myself.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

The manifestations of the human body


Someone wrote…

I often find myself wondering why gender and sexuality are such an issue.

If someone is born female but feels male (and the other way around)… shouldn’t we, as a people, help this individual to become “healthy” or “whole?”

And if some one wants to be in between some place, what is it any of anyone else’s business? Why can’t people, at a minimum, mind their own damn business?

If you don’t like what other people choose to do with their bodies and lives, it seems to me to be your problem, not theirs, in any shape or form. Don’t look if it makes you uncomfortable because there are plenty of people that enjoy all of the manifestations of the human body and will do that which is within their power to assist others to feel comfortable in their bodies, emotions, and life. If someones gender or sexual orientation prevents you from wanting to know them then you are completely undeserving of said individuals attention.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

The first time out loud


Someone wrote…

I’m trying to figure out my relationship to gender. I’m biologically female and reasonably comfortable with that. I don’t necessarily think of myself as female, though.

Sometimes I think of myself as male, sometimes female, sometimes without any gender attached. So genderqueer comes the closest to expressing my gender. I’ve had my personality described as a masculine woman and I’m attracted to people who are on the androgynous side of their expressed gender.

This is the first time I’ve said this anywhere.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
