Quotes[edit | edit source]

"Like, do I want to transition genders? No. But have my whole life have I only identified with the female perspective and only looked up to the female perspective and worshiped the female perspective? Yes. And has my mother called me "she" half of my life by accident? Yes — and I take that as the greatest compliment ever. I want to be able to live in this space where I love my femininity and don't need to put rules on it. For people who do want to live on the binary, whether they are cisgender or transgender, that is fucking amazing. There are a lot of us who live in this non-binary world, and I think that's definitely the next thing to try to help the planet understand."[3]

"You know what's so funny with me and pronouns? When I've been called, 'The Behind the Scenes King of Pop,' that creeps me out. I am definitely Queen, I'm not a King. I have two dogs I love very much; when people call me their father, or their dad, that creeps me the fuck out. Bro, man, that shit is weird. He/him/his does not freak me out. Man, King, bro, dude, dad do."[1]
