« I think my own gender identity is kind of a moving target, and it's changed a lot over my adult life. My gender identity is a bird in flight, ha! I anticipate that it will continue to change, because I am a very lucky human being and I feel like I have the personal space to do that and to explore gender for myself. So all that said, I grew up identifying as a woman. That's still a really important part of my life. I still identify in some way as a woman. And I use she/her pronouns professionally. But when it comes down to like, well, how do you call yourself, what do you think of yourself? I probably look and act the most like many of my friends who are nonbinary, but I don't necessarily use they/them pronouns.[2] »
