A Third

So California became the first state in the US to recognize non-binary people as a real gender identifier. Recently I’ve seen so many people debate non-binary people’s existence and it’s hard not to internalize it and keep quite it about it. This now inspired me to be more brave and unapologetic about my gender that I fought so hard to recognize in myself and advocate for.

I was looking back at old self-portraits and noticed that before I came to myself about my gender I often hid my face and body in self-portraits, never feeling comfortable with my body.  Once I finally had a word to identify who I was, things were crystal clear and I began to find healing from my dysphoria with self-portraits.

Here is a small bit of my journey.
