Quotes[edit | edit source]
"It was so hard for me my entire life to explain what that was. People would say 'Well just because you're a lesbian doesn't mean that you can't be feminine' [...] I didn't have the language growing up, and if I'd had the word nonbinary, I would have been able to say 'But I'm nonbinary.'"
"I must write about LGBTQ people and I must never stop being authentically me. Hiding, passing, even acting or pretending to be anything other than queer and non-binary, is a road I never want to walk. Be brave lgbtq people. We are reflecting who we are for the next generation who need us to step up and take space, be visible."
