Day 28 Of The Gender Queer Challenge

The question for day 28 is; Who are some people in your life, on or offline, who make your life better? Your relationship doesn’t have to be related to queerness.

First I don't have that many people in my life period. One person who makes my life better all the time is Alexander Yoo my current best friend, My lovely S.O. makes my life wonderful most of the time but her inability to deal with my being gender queer also causes much pain. Carla Irene Anderson who helped so much during our last move and whose struggles so often mirror my own. Then there are all the wonderful people I know online who so often have extended a helping hand, inspired me and made me think.

Day 27 Of The Gender Queer Challange

The task for today is Write a poem about being Genderqueer. (if you struggle, try a haiku, acrostic poem with your name, or just a stream of conciousness paragraph). Allright then lets see what I can come up with.

I dance in the gender cloud
I change and morph my gender as I will
My will makes the gender probabilities real
I dance not in the spaces you know but beyond them
I am gender queer and delight in this
I dance in the gender queer cloud of infinite possibilities
I dance to become

Day 26 Of The Gender Queer Challange

The question for day 26 is Discuss how your clothes do or don’t reflect your gender.

Until recently my clothes didn't reflect my gender. In the last few months, however, I have acquired some woman's shoes, shirts and camisoles. Now I mix and match my clothes depending on my mood and what I'm doing that day. I'll dress any where from mostly male with just jewelry and nail polish to all woman's clothes and just my boy jeans. As I expand my wardrobe I'm going to have even more fun.

I'm Back

In case you haven't noticed I've been absent for a while. I'm in the middle of a move from California to New Mexico.

However inspired by the brilliant Natalie Reed I've decided to start posting again. I'm starting by finishing up the 30 day gender queer challenge. A littke kate I know but I still have things to say.
