Quotes[edit | edit source]

"There's a level of comfortability and acceptance that I've had with myself thanks to the art form of drag. I would have never considered myself as nonbinary before drag, so it's really taught me a lot about myself."[1]

"I think being nonbinary is really powerful. There is such a freedom that comes with not being tied down to the binary."[1]
