QuotesEdit

"Gender fluidity is very much a part of my life offstage, though I am still exploring what it means. I've not quite decided on a gender identity, I may never decide, and that’s all right with me. I am proud to exist in an ambiguous, undecided state."[3]

"Gender dysphoria like a low-level toothache that doesn't hurt bad enough to actually go to the dentist about, especially because you don't have dental insurance and also the dentist doesn't take you seriously"[4]
