My masculine, feminine, and gender neutral aspects exist in me in equal parts. I have no desire to privilege my assigned gender at birth (AGAB). I honor the integrity of all my energies by identifying as non-binary. As someone who was raised Roman Catholic, the idea of three energies as one is an accessible construct for me. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are said to be the Holy Trinity. I embody the masculine, feminine, and the divine. All spirituality is prefaced by the idea that humans are spirits inhabiting organic bodies. My non-binary identity and use of they/them pronouns is a constant reminder that the divine lives within me and I am more than carbon-based matter.
