Hi, my name’s John and I identify as trans/genderqueer, with genders ranging from non-binary to femme. I love dangly earrings, riotgrrl/doom metal/pop punk/post-rock music, left movement building, SF Pride @ Work / HAVOQ’s vision of queer organizing as fabulousity, and visions of liberation. Super stoked this site exists.

Stay fierce, y’all.

I’m Hezekiah, I’m 22, and I can’t wait until I’ve been on testosterone for a while so that I can feel comfortable enough to more fully express my femme identity by wearing pleated skirts, cute shoes and fishnet tights.

“MINE!” I shout when he tries to take my gender away.

I am a child clutching their favorite toy, standing up to a schoolyard bully.

He is bigger than me, older than me, but gender

or battered teddy bear I will not let go.

Because these things, 

the words that give peace or the lipstick red ball I clutch to my chest

they are mine

I get the abuse because I am too old for a teddy bear 

and too feminine to ever want to be called he.

I am wrong for the things I need, 

and for being wrong or for needing them I am punished.

I take the beating, I would hit back but my too small hands are too busy holding on to my bear.

Sometimes my brothers and sisters try to hide my teddy bear

They want to run off with my stilettos, want  to cut my hair while I sleep.

They mean well.

They do this to keep me safe.

They ache for me when I come home bruised.

They ache blue and black and purple for me.

Because our blood runs in the same direction

Because maybe they too want to bounce their red ball, twirl in their red dress.

Maybe they want the teddybear hidden under their bed

The one with the soft fur, who loved them when they painted their face, and bound their breasts.  Who loved them when they shaved their hair and were still she.  Who loved them no matter what parts, what words, what clothes.

Maybe they had a milk white stuffed rabbit who’s glass eyes were the closest thing to loving they got in the dusty place where they grew up.

Maybe he has a short black skirt in the back of his denim filled closet, made of a fabric that flutters when he moves, and maybe when he wears it he feels more like a man than when he pulls the baggy grey sweatshirt over his uncomfortable curves.

Maybe she remembers playing basketball with the neighborhood kids and hates that only girls who were never called “Caleb” are allowed to play sports.

Or maybe they don’t, but maybe they ache for me.  I who am sometimes he, and sometimes she, and sometimes something else entirely.

Because there is no way to alter my uncomfortable body so that I will always be content.

My gender belongs to me like a malibu barbie.

You might have one too, you might even have the same doll

Blue swimsuit, blonde hair, blue eyes and a peaceful smile that says to me “You’re alright”

But my barbie is my barbie, and your barbie is yours.

and when I put her in a pink silk dress that is none of your concern.

They are wearing a dark green button-down shirt, a pink necktie and a length of pink lace tied around the lower half of their face in lieu of a the-internet-is-scary censor. Their short pastel pinkish-purple hair is curled loosely and frames their face, which is tilted downward. The wall behind them is painted a light teal color. End of image description.]

[image: Tali, pale-skin, nonbinary femme looking slightly away from the camera at a downward angle, with newly dyed hair, short curly hair: medium brown on the sides and back (the back isn’t showing), soft pink with strands of soft purple on the top, where it curls, and a fuchsia between the brown and the pink, mixed in with the pink as well. They are smiling a little, showing dimples, and is wearing gray rectangular glasses with two studs in the ear that’s showing. Behind them are an orange colored wall, a wooden wreath with artificial flowers, and curtains.]

um, hi. i’m brontomerus. i’m pretty cool.
in this picture i’m serving wacky western genderqueer clown realness, standing outside a hotel in a black cowboy hat, purple striped shirt, black corsety thing, neon yellow skirt, red crinoline, silver leggings, gray cowboy boots, green and pink fingerless gloves and holding a black clutch handbag with a look of confusion on my face. i had gone to the clown conference dressed to surprise my clown friend but i couldn’t find him, so i gave up and promised myself i’d never dress up as a clown again. or let this picture show up on the internet.
… but here the picture is, because i figured it’d be you of all people who could help me figure out - what kind of fanciness should i wear for my wedding?! i’m a fat genderqueer kid who wants to somehow genderfuck everything else while still feeling like a princess in something that rocks my body type (what is my body type, i don’t even know). for cheap. any ideas? white dresses not required, although dresses are seeming pretty mandatory for now.

[Image: A slightly blurry photo of the shoulders and head of a blonde non-binary person.  They are pale with blonde hair that is around shoulder length and have a clip pulling one side back. Their eyes are blue and they are wearing black rectangular glasses, slightly forward on their nose. Their head is slightly tilted down so that they eyes are pointing up and they have a smile. The bottom part of their chin and top of their shoulders are covered by the top half of a teddy bears head. In the background an abstract red and black mural on a white wall is visible.]
Hi I’m Haven. I’m a 17 year old queer autistic person whose gender is kinda yet to be determined at the moment.
The fluffy thing in the pic above is called Super Bear, I’ve had hir since I was like 7, and ze is my security blanket and confidence booster. Any why yes my teddy bear is totally non-binary, why?  Well because Ze is just that awesome ;D
I’m into SJ and politics. I have a blog over here, that focuses mainly on that and sometimes my random fan-personing over things like Criminal Minds and Harry Potter.
