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.

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.

Hi…!

[Image: a sepia-toned photograph of Eli, a white nonbinary, standing turned towards the camera at an angle and wearing a black sleeveless dress with a scarf and black shoes. Behind them you can see a dog lounging about by a bay window.]

My name’s Eli [ee-lye, like Eli Clare! but not because of him…] and I am twenty years awesome. I have privilege and I want it to be constantly checked, so check it, I implore you!  I identify as trans and queer, and usually dress in jeans and tees with subtle femmey flare, but this is my favorite dress from when I “used to be a girl.”  I am a college student in Vermont (USAmerica) and am studying a mixture of sociology, creative writing, disability studies, and gender studies [and activist and how-not-to-collude-with-the-State studies unofficially…].  I have an “undiagonoseable” chronic pain and fatigue condition as well as moderate/severe uncontrolled asthma, and thus identify as a fierce fightin’ lover with disabilities and/or chronic illnesses. I was born in the South [Georgia] and grew up in rural and poor Appalachia [West Virginia] and am not ashamed of it.  Thanks to my parents I love all things art. I am currently poor though my family is lower/middle-middle class, but I feel uncomfortable identifying thusly for fear of belittling other folks’ identities or invalidating their experiences.  I am living and working in Chicago this summer at a disability rights group and am going to be doing some organizing around the Nursing Home Industrial Complex and the Prison-Industrial Complex and if I were made of glitterbombs I would explode right now with passionate excitement.  You’re all fabulous.  Also to the mods, thank you thank you thank you for making this space—it’s filling a much needed gap—you’re lovely and beautiful and amazing and the world is so so so lucky to have you. 

fight to win, yo. <3
