A photo/essay project for LGBTQ adults (of all genders) to submit childhood pictures and stories (roughly ages 2 to 12), reflecting the memories and early beginnings of their innate selves. See how nurture allows what nature endows - and it's their nature, their truth!
This was my mothers attempt to get me to stop wearing overalls everyday.
I LOVED it, especially the cowboy boots!
By this time, I had known for a couple of years that there was something different about me.
I preferred the company of boys,
I hated dolls, and I really liked the girl in swimsuit model poster that my cousin had hanging on his wall.
I didn't totally understand why I shouldn't mention my affinity for that poster - I just knew there would be negative repercussions if I did.
