You can call me… Alex

I identify as… polysexual, and right now i identify as agender, but i’m actually not totally positive of that

As far as third-person pronouns go, … i use they/them

I’m attracted to… lots of different people, lots of different things. definitely only female genitals. i definitely like girls, and as for non-binary genders, it really just depends on the individual person. no guys though

When people talk about me, I want them to… get to know me for me, instead of focusing on and getting hung up on my gender and identity

I want people to understand… that my gender identity doesn’t change who i am as a person, and that i’m struggling, and while i do appreciate the effort if you try to make me feel better or cheer me up, it more than likely won’t work and will just frustrate me. and that, more than anything, i need you to just listen to what i say and what i need if i’m depressed, dissociating, having an anxiety attack, etc.

About Alex
i’m alex, and i’m a kid that’s depression, anxiety, and gender dysphoria-ridden, way too personal, obsessed with hamilton, youtube, and all things music, an avid reader, fiction writer, and poet, a singer and drama nerd, and a full time procrastinator

Profile: Nick, Nicky, Nicole


You can call me… Nick, Nicky, Nicole

I identify as… I’m not exactly sure… I’m used to being referred to as a girl, but I’m beginning to question that. So, nonbinary???

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I don’t really have a preference. Choose whatever you perceive me as at the time.

I’m attracted to… Girls and more feminine features. I love huge nerds.

When people talk about me, I want them to… See me without my gender getting in the way. My gender doesn’t define me, I am more than that.

I want people to understand… That I’m still figuring myself out. I’m experimenting and trying to learn more about myself. I’m not doing this for attention, I just want to feel comfortable with myself.

About Nick, Nicky, Nicole
I’m 16 years old. When I was a young kid I would play Pokémon a lot. I would choose to be a boy half of the time because I liked how it felt to be perceived that way. Sometimes I feel more like a girl, sometimes I feel more like a boy, and sometimes I’d rather be neither. I’m so thankful for my lgbt+ friends who taught me it’s okay to be yourself.

I identify as… Male

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Either works :)
He/him
They/them

I’m attracted to… Mainly males, but females too

When people talk about me, I want them to… Restrain from being to critical. It’s not like I can’t handle criticism, gender is just a sensitive topic for me right now and I would much rather have only positivity around me currently.

I want people to understand… I’m still a bit confused with my gender right now, but after years of dealing with dysphoria I’m going to identify as male online.

Profile: Ormi Fay


You can call me… Ormi Fay

I identify as… A genderfluid pansexual

As far as third-person pronouns go, … She/her is fine. My gender expression has been mostly female, for the sake of keeping my job and not confusing the hell out of people. It doesn’t feel right about a third of the time. Maybe one day I will be brave enough to demand neutral pronouns.

I’m attracted to… Kind, thoughtful, beautiful souls. It doesn’t matter what parts they have on the outside.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Stop qualifying my achievements, behavior, or aspirations within their perceived gender limitations. Don’t tell me I am doing great for a “woman.” That’s offensive and wrong. I am doing alright for a human being.

I want people to understand… I can’t relate to the cis female experience, anymore than I can relate to the cis male experience. I’ve never been just one or the other. I am both and neither.

About Ormi Fay
A 31-year old who started their career in art and graphic design, only to gravitate years later to talent management. Because the most important part of any business is its people. Still loves art, music, tattoos and all manner of self-expression. Hopes to one day see a world free of gender bias.

I want people to understand… I’m forgiving and won’t get mad if misgender me as long as you know you made a mistake. Also that being trans is not the only thing about me.

Father of one, married. My wife if aware of my “proclivities.” She is understanding to a point, but I’m not allowed to dress in public.

I tried on my mother’s clothes when I was a child. One time when I was 11 I let a girl put makeup on me and it felt really good to feel pretty. I’m not brave enough to come out right now and I don’t know if I would go through trans surgery but it’s good to know I’m not alone.

Profile: Lorenzo


You can call me… Lorenzo

I identify as… erm…well, I’m really unsure about my gender. I mean, I was born male but I have never really felt that much of ‘connection’ with this definition. I had never asked myself if being ‘male’ for me was right because I didn’t really care since me was me and not the gender assigned to me. Then, not too long ago, I started wondering again about my gender and I honestly don’t know how to define myself because I think I’m agender but I also have difficulties to completely abandon the current definition I have of myself because I’ve never felt a very gender dysphoria. (ps: I also tried to define myself as a demiboy but I don’t think this gender totally represents me -I don’t know how to explain it lol-). Pratically I think I’m agender but maybe I’m not yet ready to totally accept this?

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I don’t have a real preference, maybe because in Italian (my native language) we haven’t pronouns to define ourselves in other ways than male or female. However, if I had to choose, I would prefer ‘he/him’, ‘they/them’ or ‘ne/nem’ (I’m not even sure about my gender but I probably would prefer one of these pronouns if i would recognize myself as agender).

I’m attracted to… men. I’ve also made coming out with some of my class mates and my best friend. (Actually I’m wondering even about my sexual orientation, but the explanation would be too long lol)

When people talk about me, I want them to… know that even if I seem all happy and smiling and even a little stupid (basically all the people I know think I’m stupid lol) I have emotions too. Even if they believe I’m kinda indifferent to others’ opionions, this isn’t true (just the opposite lol. To my misfortune, I use to care a lot -maybe too much- about others’ opinions about me)

I want people to understand… that gender (like sexuality) isn’t just made of two choices (male/female or straight/gay). We have plenty of them, we only have to find ‘right one’ for us.

About Lorenzo
I’m 15, I’m Italian and I’m UGLY (and I know it lol). I’ve watched a lot of TV series and Anime and I’ve also read a lot of manga and books. My favourite genres are:
books: Fantasy, Romance and also Literature
TV series: Action, Comedy, Fantasy, Supernatural and even Romance
Anime: Basically every genre, maybe Action and Comedy (?)
Manga: Yaoi (*COFF COFF* YAOI IS LIFE *COFF COFF*), Shounen and Seinen.

I identify as… agender and transmasculine

As far as third-person pronouns go, … he/him or they/them. i like he/him most.

I’m attracted to… i’m grey-asexual / kinda demisexual and panromantic.

When people talk about me, I want them to… use masculine honorifics like ‘sir’, ‘man’, ‘mister’ etc instead of neutral terms. mr. / mx. are interchangeable, but i don’t like datefriend, sibling, child, etc for me… i want my parents to call me ‘son’, i want my brother to call me ‘brother’, and i want my s/o to call me their ‘boyfriend’.

I want people to understand… – rule 63 fanworks and cis-swapping is disgustingly cissexist and transphobic and it’s so violently invalidating so keep it away from me…
– i define agender for myself to mean ‘gender neutral’ like neutrois, not me lacking a gender
– i’m from iowa and i go to school for cinema!
– i’m autistic and i have bpd
– i’m a virgo sun, cancer moon, libra rising
