Profile: Felix Sasha Hartis


You can call me… Felix Sasha Hartis

I identify as… ftm trans, homoromantic asexual, fluid expression

As far as third-person pronouns go, … he/him/his, or they/them/theirs. He/him/his is my preferred set.

I’m attracted to… no one except Gerard Way. Just kidding, I’m ace. :) But Gerard is a verrrrry pretty person.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Think of me as a male individual with FEELINGS, and why yes I am wearing a flower crown and a skirt thank you very much. I want them to also know that I will accept anyone and everyone as long as they are being kind and respectful to others.

I want people to understand… I like wearing “girly” clothes sometimes but I am still a guy, and sometimes I refer to other people as “dude” and “bro” and sometimes when I’m being sassy “girl!” but I mean it as a completely genderneutral term.

About Felix Sasha Hartis
Hi! My name is Felix Sasha Hartis, and I am a teenage transboy living in the USA. I like music, and when I say music I mean anything between the ukulele screamo and gentle breezey lyrics of twenty one pilots, to the cymbal crashing, blood-curdling screams and tear-jerking melodies (i.e. WTTBP) of My Chemical Romance. And then the “what even is this” and “OH MY GOD THIS IS SO AMAZING AHHH” of Panic! At The Disco and The Brobecks. Wait, you mean this bio is about me? Not music? Oh. Okay. Well, I don’t really have anything else interesting to say. OKAy BAI.

Profile: Mica


You can call me… Mica

I identify as… Neither male nor female. I am both and none, like some sort of in between gender. I prefer the term “queer” to anything else.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I was using male for a while even though I am female bodied, but lately I have been introduced to the Swedish gender neutral term “hen”, I like it.

I’m attracted to… Men, but only a certain type, I am not that interested in sex but love to cuddle up to a good man.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Think of me as anyone else, I know I am different but I’m not an alien. Treat me with respect as they would be expecting to be treated with respect.

I want people to understand… That they will never truly understand what it is like to be queer unless they are themselves. It hurts me to hear people talk as though I don’t know who I am, I do, they don’t. Again, respect.

About Mica
Forty seven years old, never felt like I belong to either gender but now becoming comfortable with myself for who I am. I have only a few good friends who love me for me and the support of my family is very important.

BIG disclaimer: The Genderfork Team debated posting this video due to one ignorantly-written line*. We decided in favor of posting, due to its other redeeming qualities. We hope you enjoy the other 1:49 of the video!

*The line is “…and those who have yet to make up their minds.” Even if we decide to give them the benefit of the doubt and guess that this was intended as tongue-in-cheek, it still seems in poor taste that it is delivered by two cis people. To make matters worse, it’s followed by “crazy,” an ableist term. We hope the song makes up for these shortcomings!

Profile: Sean


You can call me… Sean

I identify as… AMAB Gender Neutral/agender – I don’t feel a disconnect from my male body, but I don’t identify with male or female. I love playing with masculinity and femininity.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … they/them or zhe/zhim/zherself pronouns, but I like when people mix it up. Don’t mind Male pronouns

I’m attracted to… Primarily other AMAB or masculine-of-center people, so I guess gay/androsexual. I like guys who are funny, witty and sweet.

When people talk about me, I want them to… recognise me for the person I am and who I want to be. And, above all else, be honest.

I want people to understand… I don’t want my physical body to restrict what and how I can present myself as.

About Sean
I have only recently come into understanding myself as a non-binary person, formerly identifying exclusively as a gay male. While the gay remains the same, my gender has finally made itself clear. I have always felt the restrictions on what AMAB and AFAB can do was the worst thing, and that people should be allowed at all times to do what they please.

If you every want to talk with me, my tumblr is thekunstisme. I just want to meet other non-binary people and share in that experience.

Profile: Fro


You can call me… Fro

I identify as… a genderless human being.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I go with feminine pronouns mostly because I look feminine and it is the easiest for my surrounding. Maybe I’ll change that in the future. Wow. That actually gives me something to think now.

I’m attracted to… crazy, reliable and romantic people (mostly men but also women)

When people talk about me, I want them to… be nice because words can cut deeper than knives. Believe me… I’ve been through that several times.

I want people to understand… that gender and sexuality is more than male/female and being a homo- or heterosexual. The world ain’t all black and white, you know? It’s colourful!

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.

Profile: Eli


You can call me… Eli… that is the name i feel comfortable with for me

I identify as… Genderfluid Pansexual, i dress like a man but and still have a girl-ish tendency at times and i get called a girl pretty much all the time. But im not entirely sure if I’m Genderfluid, or Transgender… something about having my chest have no boobs and looking in the mirror to see that, having my hair all up in a beanie so it looks like i chopped it all off finally, sitting like a man, acting like one, being called a guy when someone first met me once and that making me unbelievably happy, confuses me… because i still have moments were i act a little a girl-ish… but when ever someone says “she” when talking about me.. it seems kinda weird.. i guess..?

As far as third-person pronouns go, … At this point… I’m fine with anything.. “she.” “he.” “it.”
I mostly get female pronouns, and i don’t expect people to keep up with it or understand, because i don’t either… but one of my friends sometimes asks who i am and that’s really nice.

I’m attracted to… Every gender. nice, funny people that are accepting of who you are and don’t degrade you or others for being themselves.

When people talk about me, I want them to… i don’t really know.. male?… female?…
male…??? it??????? i have no clue

I want people to understand… that even if you don’t understand something don’t automatically think its something that’s wrong and should be torn down to nothing. I know that it might be confusing but just bear with them and let them explain it in there point of view and how they see themselves.

You can call me… Hannah, I guess. Idc. Whatever you want.

I identify as… Genderfluid, but mostly just Agender.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I’ve gone by she/her all my life, so that’s fine I suppose. It won’t always be correct, but whatever floats your boat.

I’m attracted to… Male/Female/No One. Depends how I’m feeling at the time.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Be polite, but honest. But people don’t usually talk about me. I’m not very interesting.

I want people to understand… I’m an extremely sarcastic, pessimistic and nihilistic person by nature. Don’t be offended if I accidentally offend you. It wasn’t on purpose.

About Hannah, I guess. Idc. Whatever you want.
I’m 17 now. Mum was diagnosed with PTSD when I was 8. She’s pretty much lived in the hospital since then, but she has her own place. I was bullied all my life, but it didn’t really get to me since I always had my head in a book. On the outside I’m a really boring person, but that’s cuz I like my own company much more than I’ll ever like the company of others. Who’s had three existential crises in as many years? Me!! Woo. Um, I’m pretty good at singing, I guess. I play piano and violin. Uh… That’s it.

Profiles: Kristen


You can call me… Kristen

I identify as… demiwoman (?)

As far as third-person pronouns go, … she/her (but I feel like I would be fine with gender-neutral pronouns too)

I’m attracted to… I’m asexual (so don’t feel sexual attraction) but I am romantically and aesthetically attracted to more than one gender (bi). I’m not sure if I am attracted to people despite gender, so I don’t identify as pan.

When people talk about me, I want them to… speak as effortlessly as they do about someone more conventional, while respecting my identity.

I want people to understand… that most of us probably do not fit in the binary options we’re generally taught as the only options for gender, and that gender has been and continues to be used as a tool for oppression and marginalization.

About Kristen
I struggle with some mild anxiety, and have lingering issues as a result of childhood abuse and neglect at the hands of a narcissistic parent. I am struggling to explore my sexuality and gender identities, but feel fairly confident that I am asexual and biromantic. I’m not yet sure about my gender identity, but I think I might be a demiwoman.
