It has been hard to cope with being a survivor of violence and preserve the identities that I'm proud of. Labels can hurt and people don't realize how damaging some can be during recovery.
Non-binary Stereotypes Redefined
Because this is amazing.
I love community art and nonprofits.
Because even though I'm femme, I'm still they/them! We need more queer / trans POC to represent and take up space.
Because our labels while define us also limit us. Labels are social constructs and are not really real.
I'm proud of myself and all the various labels I fit into, they don't describe me, but they are parts of me and shouldn't be shrouded in shame. I hope that someday labels will not be something that define people but help them expand themselves.
