Quotes[edit | edit source]

"I embrace my own inner gender-equality and also complete gender-neutrality. Gender has become less and less significant to me as I have come into my body and mind. I no longer long to be referred to as “sir” nor do I feel disdain when referred to as “miss.” I realize now that I identify as all-of-the-above and yet, none-of-the-above. I have transcended above labels and I have embraced all that is within me. This is what transgender feels like to me… transcending gender."[5]
