Quotes[edit | edit source]

« I did all the comings-out society requires of people like me: at the age of five, I acquired my first dress and was discovered lip-syncing to Celine Dion. At the age of 13, I came out as gay to an unprepared family while wearing a fluffy dressing gown, clutching a mug that read 'I love shoes.' In 2009, at the age of 19, I stepped out in full drag for the first time. When I was 21, my family attended their first ever drag show – starring me. At the age of 25, I was violently attacked outside my home in east London, something that I'm still coming back from. And at the age of 26, I came out as non-binary. »
