I’m a baked potato/dank femme. My interests lay in the arts and humanities, though I constantly feel that I am just motoring up on my endeavors. I study in California, theatre arts and gender studies. I manage and create, when I manage to create.

Hungry Ghost



From the artist, Alynda Segarra:

‘Hungry Ghost’ captures the beauty of safe and queer DIY venues and parties. These sanctuaries will only become more important in these grave and uncertain times. Queerness is the future of our country and we, the future generation, are aiming for the freedom of gender fluidity and intersectional justice for all people. As artists and freethinkers we must care for each other and hold these safe spaces close to us. With those we lost in Oakland and Orlando in our hearts, this video is a love letter to all the queer people who are putting on intentional events that promote nights of safety, unity and freedom. Keep up the good work.

I Accepted That Label


Someone wrote…

I have no idea how a woman feels, and I don’t identify with the way a man supposedly feels. I suppose I am an androgyne, because a woman at an old job once remarked that I was androgynous. I accepted that label. It feels ok. Maybe I just enjoy being ambiguous.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

They Just Think I Am


Someone wrote…

I’m AFAB and can’t express my being nonbinary to anyone because I enjoy some woman-coded things and they just think I am and should be a girl.

Else / Corbin


img_0095
You can call me… Else online, Corbin irl

I identify as… A playwright, spouse, friend, seeker, non-political activist (cultural activist?), artist, and good cook.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I do not like language to define me, only support me. To support me, use they/them

I’m attracted to… The combination of fear and honesty that expresses itself through hard work and ambition. Understanding, as both knowledge and compassion. Irreverence in darkness. Thought in action, theory in flesh. Righteously chaotic artists. Myth-makers.

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

I want people to understand… Fear came first, and it piles on. Before identity, before patriarchy, before language, before history, before tribalism, before evolution, before consciousness there was fear. It is the great tool, the mechanism of civilization that brought us out of the woods, that gave us both reason and faith. It is a powerful force, but it only serves to the good if we are afraid for one another, and not of one another.

About Else / Corbin
Else is Corbin’s digital name. It is derived from conditional statements, used in both logic and computer coding, as the undefined alternative to all explicitly defined options. Their plays Boxcar, Three Seconds, and Saving Throw, are available on New Play Exchange, and their company website can be accessed through http://tinyurl.com/renovationists.

On My More Male Days


KC wrote…

I’ve recently come to the realization that I am genderfluid and experience slight to major dysphoria about my breasts on my more male days. I enjoy having them on my more female days though. I was wondering if that feeling of dysphoria ever really goes away. I’m considering saving up for top surgery only I fear that if I did get it, I’d regret it on my female days.

What’s your experience?
