Being transgender and a person of color with parents who are immigrants is a particular experience.
“For most of my life I have felt discomfort calling myself a woman, it never sits right in my mouth and I always feel a heaviness when referring myself as such. I thought that if I was not a woman, I had to be a man. I have never felt more pain than the times I identified myself as a man. In this time, the way I viewed myself and interacted with the world felt stiff and incorrect, I was stuck between a hard place and a wall; If I wasn’t a woman or a man, what could I possibly be?” Link in bio now!🌈 • Written by @sunshinebutch Art by @nicolezaridze • #lesbian #lgbt #lgbtq #pronounsmatter #identity

“When it comes to the label “non-binary”, we have finally succeeded in pinpointing the emotions that so many people have been identifying with over the years. I will say, if it weren’t for the recent discussion around it, I would still be lost in my own thoughts of who I am and how to identify myself.” Read “Coming to Terms with Being Non-Binary” link in bio now! 🌻 • Written by @hellohawwaa Art by @glitchedplant • #nonbinary #nonbinarypride #lgbt #queermuslim
